26 Apr 2018 - Exclusive agreement targets worldwide expansion for one of the fastest-growing franchises in South Korea

World Franchise Associates has announced the signing of an agreement to exclusively represent T BUN Bun & Bubble Tea for international development opportunities with a focus on Asia and the Middle East.

T Bun is one of the fastest growing franchises in South Korea. The brand started in 2017, opening 8 shops in South Korea and 1 shop in Perth, Australia. T BUN is planning an aggressive rollout of 20-30 new stores in South Korea over the next 12 months along with 3 new stores in Australia. T BUN is also planning to expand its business to Southeast Asia, the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region, Canada, The United Kingdom and other international markets over the next 2 years.

Jonathan Kwon, Managing Director of T BUN said, “With support from World Franchise Associates we are currently speaking to candidates about opportunities to become our exclusive master franchisees and area developers in many international markets. An exclusive T BUN master franchisee or area developer would be granted the rights for a specific country or territory and would be expected to develop a reasonable and competitive number of T BUN outlets in that country/territory over an initial 10-year development term, starting initially with company owned T BUN outlets and thereafter via sub-franchising.”

T BUN offers both doughnuts and baked goods, and beverages.

There are more than 300 kinds of milk tea sold in Taiwan. The tea is noted as being good for health, and customers range from kids to old generations.

Troy Franklin, Chief Operating Officer, World Franchise Associates – Southeast Asia, said, "We are excited about partnering with T BUN, a world-class concept and product. As one of the fastest growing franchises in South Korea, T BUN represents an appealing investment for both kiosks and small cafes providing investors with attractive profit margins and dedicated support for international franchisees.”
