Chatime is here to shake up the way Australians drink tea – and we're growing fast!

Since launching our fresh and fun iced tea concept in Australia in 2009, we've grown rapidly. Chatime is now set to open over 100 stores by the end of 2018 and 2,000 stores worldwide.

Now is the time to become a Chatime franchise partner as we continue to pay homage to traditional Taiwanese tea, subtly tweaked to appeal to the Australian market. Our products are fresh, fun and exciting, offering a healthier alternative to artificial, sugary iced tea options.

We're here to support you on your exciting journey to becoming a business owner. Our experienced and approachable team truly see this as a business partnership, not a business transaction. We're looking for passionate, hard-working people who will mesh well with our fun, innovative culture.

We're in this together!

This is a partnership

We're not in the business of selling franchises. We'd like to partner with you, to offer ongoing support and mentorship so you're in a position to run your own successful Chatime business. We'll offer training, systems, processes and assistance to get you thriving. We recognise fully that your success is our success, and we're in this together.

A market-leading iced tea franchise

While there are several other iced tea/bubble tea franchise businesses available in Australia, none are as widely recognised as Chatime. We are leaders in the space because of our innovative product range and our clever adaptation to the Western market. As a Chatime franchisee, you get to ride off our success and reputation.

A flexible, comfortable lifestyle

Chatime is not your average hospitality business. Our franchisees work an average of 29.6hrs per week, and are able to find the time to do school pick up and fit in life admin as well. Because of our advanced systems and processes, and because we take care of a lot of the admin for you, you can enjoy your life while running a business.

Setup costs

Setup costs start from just $300,000. This includes design and documentation fees, training, shop fit-out, stock and equipment. There is an ongoing monthly royalty of 5.5% and a marketing levy of 3.5%. Chatime is accredited with ANZ bank and funding is available to approved franchisees meeting their criteria.

Ongoing support

With a Chatime franchise, you're not just supported at the start of your journey. We've set it up so you're taken care of throughout our partnership. Let us take care of the admin for you, with HR support, bookkeeping, and rostering. We'll offer ongoing financial and business advice, as well as recommendations to help you improve operations. We'll carry out nationwide marketing campaigns to boost the brand, while providing you with your own tools to market locally. Plus – you've got access to engaging online training programs which you can use for your staff over and over.
