Have you ever wanted to be part of a tearoom but found it too overwhelming?
Exciting news, Tea Travellers!
Exciting news, Tea Travellers!
We've been silent for a little while as we'd been sworn to secrecy, but as of today we've been given the go-ahead to announce that we have the opportunity to take over the wonderful Tea and Teacups Tea Room in Yorba Linda. The beloved owners, Claudia and Terry, are going to focus their energies on their tea importing business, Empress Tea Company, and we plan on doing several events with them.
As tearoom owners will tell you, it is all but impossible to make a go of a tea business unless you have something else to offer your customers, be it a gift shop or other related business. We plan to maintain a small gift shop and very active salon with an unparalleled diversity of events and experiences. Please see our mock website for a peek at what's in store: SireniTea mock website
Tea and Teacups opened 25 years ago, and thanks to its 3 different sets of owners, has served the tea community without cessation. We intend to keep the tradition going for many years to come. Many enthusiasts long to own or be part of a tearoom, but few have the flexibility of schedule to devote 7 very long days a week to the enterprise. If you'd like to be a vital part of the tearoom experience, we have a variety of ways for you to get involved.
We are currently raising capital to ensure the continuation of the tearoom. We have several basic business things already in place, but need to come up with additional start-up funds to get the ball rolling. Here are some of the ways we intend to do so:
Enjoy Pre-Pay Discounts & Deals
Earn tearoom gift certificates, shop discounts and cash bonuses
Contribute and Be Recognized! Proof that even tea has 'perqs'
Our tearoom will be a collaborative effort, made possible by the contributions of time and funds by many an afternoon tea lover. Here's how you can get involved and how you'll be rewarded ... aside from the obvious rewards of goodwill and seeing the tearoom continue in perpetuity.
