Business Plans, Investors, and franchisees

Postby teachat » Jun 8th, '05, 15:55

At present I am conducting research for opening a high-end tea emporium/house.

We have yet to decide if a franchisee or sole investor is the best option and we are working on an area specific feasibility study and business plan.

Can anyone offer information on franchisee opportunities in the US?
Also any information on this matter or advice based on experience would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Angela,

Two franchise options immediately come to mind: Tealuxe and Teavana. The former is found at http://www.tealuxe.com The latter is http://www.teavana.com

For ideas on doing something on your own, please view the many tearoom reviews posted on Tea Muse and Tea Map. The links for both are: http://www.teamuse.com and http://www.teamap.com

Hope this helps. Please keep us posted of your progress,
Michael

I would like to open a Tea Market. Since our small town of 15,000 and still growing has 8 coffee shops and no place to buy tea and sit and have a nice hot cup of tea. Any help out there on where to start?
Thanx
