Yellow Tie Hospitality to bring Taiwan’s milk tea brand Chachago to India

Restaurant franchise management company Yellow Tie Hospitality is gearing to bring Taiwan-based beverage brand Chachago to India in January.

The company intends to open 100 Chachago outlets by 2021.

Besides India, the company has also got the master franchise rights to develop Chachago in markets such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh, besides West Asia, including the UAE, Turkey, Kuwait, and Israel and Jordan among others.

Focus on beverage

Karan Tanna, Founder & CEO of Yellow Tie Hospitality said, “Our focus is on developing a strong portfolio of brands in the restaurant space that can be scaled up through efficient franchising management. We felt there was lack of a beverage-focused restaurant brand in our portfolio. Hence, we decided to acquire the franchise rights for Chachago, which is known as the ‘House of Milk Tea’.”

“This is also the first time that an Indian company has got a franchise rights to develop a brand in mature markets in the West Asian region,” he said, adding that the company will make its international foray next year.

Product range

The Taiwan-based brand is known for its milk teas, bubble teas, fruit-infused beverage, cheese-based beverages, milkshakes, and other speciality beverages and desserts.

Besides Taiwan, it has presence in Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Vietnam and the Philippines.

“We believe the brand has a huge potential in the Indian region. It will be positioned in the QSR segment with the average store size of 100-500 sq ft,” he added. The first store is set to open in Bengaluru early next year. The company believes the brand will get traction not only in metros but also in tier-2 and -3 towns.

“Initially, we will open some flagship stores in metros on our own. Then we will look at roping in franchise territory partners for north, south, east and west and have plans to open 100 Chachago stores by 2021,” Tanna said. The company will invest about $6 million on the brand expansion and development.

Store strength

Yellow Tie Hospitality expects to close 2018 with about 60 stores, a majority of them franchise-run stores. Its existing restaurant brand portfolio include Genuine Broaster Chicken, Dhadoom, Umraan Regional, Wrapchic, Teddy’s, Wok This Way, Just Falafel, and Twist of Tadka.


“We want to have about 300 outlets across various brands in the next three years,” Tanna added.

Franchise Discovery helped us set up our waffle franchise, from start to finish. We didn't have to run about for licenses, and all the paperwork was taken care of. We are now running the business happily. Thank you Franchise Discovery.



When we first came to Franchise Discovery, we didn't have much idea about starting a business. My wife and I are both from the service industry, but we wanted to get into business so that we could stop the 9 to 5 routine. We were helped beyond our imagination, and hope to start more businesses in the future.

I thank everyone at Franchise Discovery for the smooth functioning of starting our set up. We were skeptical at how to run a fast food business, but we got all the help and expertise we needed and couldn't be more relieved. We are now thinking of taking up another franchise of desserts this time. Hope things go well again.
