Moe founded Kokomo's Suntanning & Swimwear Outlets Inc. in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. Kokomo's, with only two locations at the time, and a vision to “provide an affordable luxury where everybody can feel better about themselves”, grew into one of the most recognizable brands in the area. It represented the premier collection of indoor mega-salons in the country and by 2012, Kokomo's boasted eleven locations and over eighty-five employees.

In early 2020, to supplement lost revenue in his other ventures due to the pandemic, Moe and his team conceived the idea to open a ghost Bubble Tea store. With tremendous success, he decided to open a second store. In late 2021 the concept blossomed into a franchise for the Greater Toronto Area. Now, there are six stores open and another five in development. In early 2022, locations will be opening inside Freshco stores across Canada.

We keep it simple.

While everything seems to be getting more complex, we’ve simplified the business model. We’ve done away with costly elements of food prep—there are no fryers or hoods—to keep development costs low. Instead, we use high-powered blenders, a convection oven, and fresh ingredients. The result is flavorful drinks that win over brand fans everywhere we go.

Our stores are easier to operate, so you can spend more time connecting with your guests and mentoring your team. Our guests love our stores, and our employees enjoy the atmosphere, which helps you attract and retain high-quality team members.

Schedule a Discovery Day

Now that you have been financially approved, you will be invited to attend a Discovery Day event. Discovery Day is showtime, so the better prepared you are, the more successful the results will be. During this day, you will visit a few of the concept’s locations and meet the key teams that support the business. The Discovery Day should validate your interest in the franchise you want to own and confirm that it a mutually good fit for both you and the franchisor.

The franchise agreement will designate the territory in which you will operate and outline any exclusivity rights you may have.

Location Requirements

As a new Mo’Cha Franchise Owner, you will want to select a location that meets the following guidelines:

Strong vehicular and/or foot traffic

Franchise locations typically draw the most patronage when the store is easily accessible on foot or by car with ample parking. Mo’Cha stores located in high pedestrian and vehicle traffic have the option to add drive-thru servicing, which is an added benefit to both the franchisee and the customer.

Generators

Mo’Cha stores that are located near heavily populated institutions and facilities have a built-in clientele. Franchises that are a convenient outlet for our product often see higher sales, help to establish brand awareness for the area, and more easily gain a reliable customer base.

45k+ residential population within 4 km

Areas with a residential population of approximately 45,000 are ideal for building a customer base. Residential areas that meet these criteria are typically capable of location success and long-term sustainability.

15k+ daytime population within 4 km

There should be a minimum daytime population of approximately 15,000 in the immediate area of the store during prime operating hours. This daytime population would include residents of the area as well as those who work or attend school within the 4 km radius.

Millennial/Gen Z guest base (18-34)

Mo’Cha’s largest client base is between 16 to 45 years of age. Establishing a location where these two generations are the most prevalent populations in the vicinity of the store will best position the store for success.

$75k+ household income

A store located in an area where the median household income minimum is at least $75,000 annually is recommended in order to generate consistent revenue for such store. Areas with this yearly income tend to be more mindful with food options and support food service brands with which they are familiar.

What demographics does Mo’Cha Bubble Tea look for?

Our target customer is a millennial who is between the ages of 16 and 45. Our focus is 65% skewed towards women. We are looking for starter families, baby boomers, and established Canadians. We offer a premium product, so our guests need to have some ancillary income in order to frequent our locations on a regular basis. Therefore, we try to find locations among the average household incomes, or higher for a given market. We cannot exclude certain areas given the range of our guests overall and, therefore, we do not limit ourselves to a particular set of demographics across the board.

How much money can I make?

Since the actual results of individual franchises are based on factors that are not within the control of Mo’Cha Bubble Tea, we do not provide estimates of profits or revenues. However, after consulting with a Mo’Cha Bubble Tea Franchise Development Manager and reviewing the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), you will have the opportunity to contact our existing franchisees regarding their experiences.

What is the profitability of the business?

It is impossible to predict future results about the profitability of the business. There are many factors that can influence the result including: sales, location, financing terms, and ability to manage the business. For these reasons, we do not predict profitability for any store.

What happens after I submit my online application?

Our representative will contact you via email or phone for further discussion.
