Our good friends at O-Cha Tea Bar have been through the small business gauntlet. About two years ago they opened their first store on Main Street in Greenville, SC.
The store was stunning. The tea was innovative and popular. And they managed to build a very strong cult following. Unfortunately, a cult following can't support 3,200 square feet of rent on Main Street and they had to close the doors about a year after they opened.
However, store 1.0 didn't go down without a fight. Fans started a Facebook group and organized events, told about specials, and basically kept O-Cha afloat for several months.
Fast forward a year. O-Cha is back!
This time they cut the fat. The store size is measured in the hundreds of feet. The menu is smaller and they are focused on serving great bubble tea.
Proving once again that smaller can be better O-Cha is doing great in their new location and now they need a new website.
So, tomorrow (Friday September 5th) we our taking the OCHFWD show on the road. We are going to work from O-Cha Tea Bar all day and focus on designing a new website for O-Cha.
Things should be fun.
