Come join us -

Are you look for a space to create community? Looking for premium boba tea (also know as bubble tea!) in a fast-casual boba tea cafe setting with food options? As Asian Americans in Central Texas, we struggled to find the food and drinks we grew up loving and to see Asian American representation in the communities we were a part of.

With a desire to not only share premium boba tea, dumplings, and other delicious food options, but to also create community, we started our small business Cha Community in 2018. We invite you to join us in our journey as we continue walking out in our values of community, diversity, and courage!
