The Alley is a famous Taiwanese bubble tea brand with global presence. It offers sensational experiences through quality lifestyle merchandise, delectable foods and beverage innovations that not only appease taste buds but also delight the visual senses. More than tea, The Alley illuminates on a whole new appreciation of quality living.
The Alley carries an exclusive halal certified menu with hand-crafted drinks and grab-and-go café food including our series of mouth-watering croffles (a hybrid of a croissant and waffle) with moreish toppings, our appetizing food range including our famous Korean toasted sandwich, light bites and house blended specialty coffee.
With the aid of social media, The Alley’s Instagrammable sweet drinks and decor have attracted fervent milk and fruit tea lovers to line up for hours whenever a new store opens. Chinese people speak of the Alley as the “internet celebrity tea”, meaning the tea goes viral overnight on social media!
The Alley brand has grown to 450 locations across China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, New Zealand, Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Korea, UK, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, France, Australia, Mongolia, Italy, Czech Republic, Israel and the US since it first opened in Taiwan in 2013.
The first UK location opened in November of 2019 with several sites now operating across prime areas of London.
"I am thrilled to be The Alley UK franchisee! Opening two successful sites in Westfields has been an incredible journey, and I'm excited to announce plans for our third location. The support and opportunities provided by The Alley UK have been instrumental in our growth, and I look forward to a flourishing future." - Tahir Ali
