Founded in Taichung, Taiwan in 2017, boba tea chain Tiger Sugar has expanded incredibly fast, with locations in China, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Canada—plus more than 55 locations so far in the United States. The chain already has two locations in South Florida (in Hollywood and Coral Springs), and it’s now planning to launch a third in South Miami.
Recently submitted plan review paperwork places the South Miami location at 5828 Sunset Drive. What Now confirmed the news of the opening with Brian, the brand’s franchisee for Florida, on Tuesday. Brian said there are also locations in the works for Tampa and Orlando.
Florida’s Tiger Sugar locations have recently added boba drink flavors like Passion Fruit, Strawberry Mochi, and Taro Pudding. These are offered alongside signature varieties, including Black Sugar Boba + Pearl + Chocolate Malt Milk with Cream Mousse. There is also a popular selection of fruit teas.
“They say imitation is the best form of flattery,” says the Tiger Sugar website. “Many companies have tried to replicate our black sugar bubble tea, but our tried and proven methods stand the test of time.”
Opening in the Sunset Drive location, Tiger Sugar will join nearby restaurants like Old Lisbon Restaurants, Casa Cuba, Bougainvillea’s Old Florida Tavern, and Deli Lane Cafe & Sunset Tavern.
