Through a master-franchisee model, the stores will be launched in Delhi and Gurgaon, followed by Chandigarh. There are plans to open a total of 150 stores all across India. According to A K Srikanth, CEO Alchemist Foods, Bubble Tea is best described as a combination of tea, fresh fruit juice and smoothie. This will also be Alchemist’s first foray into the beverage space.
