Tea has always enjoyed the reputation of reinvigorating your body and mind, but now it is also being seen as a safe bet business.
Joseph Rajesh, the founder of Black Pekoe and Tea Boy chai outlets, hailing from Mochakottam Palayam, a small village in Karur district of Tamil Nadu, has joined the league of several educated youngsters who have launched successful tea chains in the country.
Starting with a 100 sq ft tea shop in 2017 that was started with Rs 50,000 at a mall in Velachery, Chennai, he has built a chain of 78 outlets across Tamil Nadu under his company Bigbillion Food & Beverages Private Limited.
“Our turnover was Rs 7 crore in 2020-21 and we expect it to touch Rs 10 crore in the current financial year. We have opened more than 60 outlets this year,” says Joseph.
