Companies will always say that they first started with a clear and strong vision for their business. Well we didn’t.
We started with broken hearts when our go-to boba shop in the mission closed, and false confidence thinking two guys and a small kitchen could make the best milk teas in San Francisco.
Luckily for us, that false confidence worked because it fueled us to watch countless hours of YouTube videos about making the perfect cup of boba milk tea, and subsequently, motivated us to visit every boba shop in the city to learn about best processes and techniques (to note* we definitely weren’t welcomed with open arms). But the wheels were churning anyway. And we opened our first pop-up. And then the vision finally sunk in, after we were knee-deep in boba.
We wrote down three simple words down that forever anchored us in our business; quality, passion and transparency. And over time - those three little words evolved into three core values that we now stand for.
So yeah - we run our company the Boba Guys way, but that’s just how we like it.
We stand for quality
Food is our craft (*the true love of our life*) and we knew our drinks and ingredients had to be top notch if we wanted to change the industry. So what did we do? We changed standard methodologies and introduced small-batch drink making, and sourced only the finest ingredients for our drinks.
Yeah it made our drinks slightly more expensive than standard boba shops, but guess what, it also upped the standards of quality within the entire industry. Why be standard when you can be bold? Bye bye powders! You won’t be missed.
We Stand for giving a damn
Let’s say it again. We actually give a damn. We source responsibly, pride ourselves on customer service and care about what you think. We give 110% in everything we do: whether it's making a cup of tea, sweeping the floors, or milking a cow.
We are ballsy
Call us crazy, but we believe in changing the way people see boba and tea. That starts with having the balls to challenge the game and become 100% transparent, above and beyond what you would expect from normal businesses. We’re also ballsy because just like your ex, you’ll never know what will come from us next. The only difference between your ex and us is that we will never break your heart.
Our favorite? We're ballsy because we dare to try new things, even if they don’t work out because you know what? That’s just life - but you need to go ahead and try anyways.
