Shropshire Council is pleased to announce that a new, unique bubble tea brand called Bubble On Cup opens at The Darwin centre in Shrewsbury today (Friday 28 October 2022).

Gavin Wong is the proud founder of Bubble On Cup. Gavin was aware of the bubble tea craze sweeping the UK long ago. He then started to sell freshly made bubble tea at Dada Oriental Thai in Riverside. It turned out a lot of people enjoyed it. He then decided the time was right to launch Bubble On Cup, and approached the management at The Darwin to discuss possible sites for the new store.

Bubble On Cup will serve more then 20 varieties of bubble tea, including the celebrated brown sugar flavour. For those who prefer a simpler tea, Bubble On Cup will also be serving black tea, honey lemon tea, green tea and Panda milk tea. Everything served will be made fresh on site.

The store will be open daily from Monday to Saturday: 9.30am to 5pm, Sunday: 11am to 4pm for takeaways, and will be located near to the main entrance of the centre. For daily updates follow the brand on Facebook and Instagram.

The Darwin proudly champions local, independent brands and has helped independent businesses open their first permanent bricks and mortar stores by offering them affordable and flexible leasing terms.

Gavin Wong, owner of Bubble On Cup, said:-

“We’re pleased to open Bubble On Cup in The Darwin centre and look forward to offering everyone a greater range of teas. We specialise in our own recipes of bubble tea, with a selection of different ‘bubble’ toppings to enhance your tea experience.”

Kevin Lockwood, Centre Manager of The Darwin, said:-

“We’re very excited to welcome another independent retailer to the centre’s already diverse lineup of brands. We’ve worked with Gavin for several years, so it is great to see him flourish and expand his offer even further with us – we will always support our tenant’s ambitions as much as we can. The store’s offer is impressive and vast, so I have no doubt they will be a popular bubble tea destination in Shrewsbury.”
