Proven success

Bambu’s fees are relatively low and fixed, so you only pay a fixed monthly royalty & marketing fee after you open, rather than a percentage of your monthly revenue like almost all of our franchise competitors. High-traffic Shoppe locations can calculate their return on investment in months versus years.

am i qualified?

Not only are we discerning and passionate about what goes into our drinks, but we are also discerning and passionate about our franchisee partnerships. Simply put, we want the right fit. At Bambu, we believe successful Shoppes are built upon a strong franchiser and franchisee relationship.

As such, there are a few traits that we hold near and dear to our hearts when considering potential partners, and some corresponding questions we will be asking our prospective franchisees to answer in detail. We realize our franchisees come from very diverse backgrounds, ages, and reasons for owning a Bambu. In some cases, you may be the active manager, and in other cases, it may be someone in your organization or who you hire to make Bambu a reality.

where are the new franchises available?

There are currently over 80 Bambu Shoppes open or opening soon in the United States, Canada and the Philippines. We are looking to continue our expansion across the US and Canada and multiple international cities. Keep in mind that every franchise comes with a protected territory which varies based on location and population density, so there are a number of cities where we can no longer accept applications for. Once you qualify as a Franchisee and sign our Franchise Agreement, you can lock-up an area—giving you the necessary time to find the right high-traffic location.
