Tea Time eyes at 80 cr cups per month ; plans to venture into snack business

Hyderabad, Jan 1 (UNI) India’s largest network of tea franchise outlets, Tea Time, is aiming to sell from 3.5 crore cups per month to 80 crore cups per month in future.

“Serving quality tea at affordable price is our aim which led to a creation of 2,800 franchise network of Tea Time,“ Tea Time Founder and Managing Director Mr. Uday Srinivas Tangella said while delivering a talk on ‘ Formalizing Entrepreneurship over a Cup of Tea’ at the 37th WiseViews Leadership Conversations conducted by ICFAI here on Friday evening.
Mr. Uday said the Covid-19 situation has helped in the growth of Tea Time as people looked to consume tea at a hygiene place and Tea Time stood up to serve this purpose and it attracted more people to take up the franchise of the Tea Time.
In future, snacks like samosa and biscuits can also be formalized, believed Mr. Uday and he stated that very soon they are planning to venture into the snack business.
Explaining his journey as a student and his dilemma to start his own business, he said initially he started a café to serve fresh fruit juices and it turned out to be a failure. Then he thought about what is common to every Indian. The answer was ‘Tea’.
Mr. Uday stated that he did some research about the Tea market in India and the opportunity he found was staggering. There is a market of 3.5 lakh crore cups in this field and that excited him to start the Tea business.

Mr. Uday started the first outlet of Tea Time at Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh state and decided to build a franchise network in the country.

“Franchise networks bring a sense of ownership and the hygiene part is taken care of” he stated.
“Tea is the second largest consuming beverage after water. The common man of our country deserves better tea in a hygienic environment at an affordable price is the philosophy behind the evolution of the Tea Time and we ensure that the quality is maintained across all the outlets,” Mr. Uday explained.
He also said “ Till 100 outlets, Tea Time did not have its own office and the focus on the quality clubbed with hygiene has led to the phenomenal growth of over 2800 outlets at present in 14 states across the country.”

“At Tea Time, we strive to strike a connection with the common man and the interior design of the outlet is made to suit his walk into the outlet. The price also is fixed at around Rs. 10 to pull the common man to Tea Time”, he also explained.
Mr. Uday termed the “Tea Time as the Café of the common man” and his aim is to sell from 3.5 crore cups per month to 80 crore cups per month in future.
