Join Thomas Liu and Stacey Kwong, the founders of Loose Leaf Boba Company and MILK+T in an immersive boot camp experience, detailing the ins and outs of the boba industry and its cultural significance.
Whether you've never heard of boba or you're someone interested in opening their very own shop, Thomas and Stacey will walk you through their story of beating the odds, surviving a pandemic, and coming out on top. From menu development to building a healthy team and workplace, they will walk you through how they opened up their combined 12 nationwide stores and counting.

The boba industry was considered a fad when it first debuted in the US in the 1990s. 30 years later, they're here to tell you that it's not and that this $4B industry is here to stay. So join us for Boba Bootcamp at the World Tea Conference and let's get #bobawasted!
