This Washington D.C.-based beverage company is the first bubble tea concept on this year's Future 50 ranking. It is an old chain, particularly for a bubble tea brand, and is the largest concept on the ranking by unit count, with 135 locations. But though it has been around for a while, it has taken off more recently as the bubble tea phenomenon has grown. System sales have averaged 37% growth the past three years, and it generated nearly $47 million in sales in 2021.
