Coffee might sound cool, but India is definitely a nation of tea-lovers. And it is little wonder that we are seeing an increasing number of chai places that are giving stiff competition to all the coffee places of the world. The latest ‘chai shop’ to open in Hyderabad is Chaiops.
While Chaiops is a chain that operates in two other countries, it has opened its first chai cafe in Somi Reddy Nagar in Attapur. The cafe chain has over 50+ cafes in the country that serve delicious chai to customers.
But it was no easy task for founders Satvir Singh and Nitin Tomar. The brand was started in 2015, thanks to Satvir’s love for chai. However, raising funds was no easy matter for the duo. They had to resign from their jobs and spend two complete years on research and fund sourcing. They started off with one cafe in Gurugram, and today, they are proud owners of 50+ Chaiops outlets.
The brand intends to open 200+ cafes by March 2023. As of now, they are opening six a month, though their target happens to be ten a month. Chaiops has already entered UAE and Bangladesh markets, and its next target is to expand to six other countries.
They have a variety of teas like masala tea, Chaiops special chai 20, flower tea, and 50+ organic flavored teas and non-milk tea, chocolate chai, and many more. The tea is procured from the best tea estates in India, which gives their teas a totally different flavor.
Apart from tea, Chaiops also has a decent selection of burgers, pizzas, fries, smoothies, etc.
