Overview


The bubbly drink making waves across the globe is now more accessible to the American public


In 1986 at a tea shop in Taiwan, 4 simple ingredients were combined, giving birth to the first boba (source). Boba quickly became a cultural staple throughout Asia and reached the US by the 1990s (source). With increasing popularity across the US in the last decade, its widespread consumption is only expected to grow.

At Bobacino, we saw an opportunity to help small business owners expand their reach by creating a new kind of boba shop that keeps operational costs low, while maintaining a sleek and stylish appearance and producing boba of the highest quality! Introducing Bobacino: an innovative and highly accessible automated boba bar that makes bubble teas that are as pretty as they are delicious!

The photos included are of Bobacino's first functioning prototype and is not currently available on the market


The Problem


We believe Boba shops in the US are more concentrated on the coasts and have high operational costs


Despite worldwide growth and popularity, we believe boba in America is still highly concentrated on the coasts (source), primarily due to the high costs associated with building and operating a physical store. Many end up compromising quality in favor of using cheaper ingredients.

We believe there is still a huge untapped market of boba consumers within the US, and by partnering with boba shops to expand their reach, this puts us at a great advantage for massive market capture!

Based on Managements understanding of the market

The Solution


Bobacino is fully automated to deliver ample quality at a low costGIF

Bobacino was designed to make high quality boba more accessible to consumers throughout the US by keeping costs low. Inspired by today’s modern world of iconic and viral allure, Bobacino delivers a fun, stylish and interactive experience for the next generation of boba consumers, with the goal of helping to build a community of boba enthusiasts across the US.

Bobacino is not currently in the market and these statements reflect the Company’s strategic goals. The above image is a computer generated rendering

Bobacino helps to provide an alternative, exciting and colorful treat, and moment of escape, beyond the typical specialty coffee experience. And because our stands are fully robotically operated, we are able to help small business owners deliver high quality, affordable drinks with low overhead costs.

The Market


The US has a huge untapped market for this multibillion dollar industry


After becoming a staple in Asia, Boba quickly hit a global market value of $5.3 billion in 2019 and is expected to increase to $8 billion by 2024 (source).

 Based on management’s understanding of the market

According to a report published by iCrowd Newswire on July 7, 2020. See report here

The target market for Bobacino is Gen Z and Millennials, as pods can be stationed in places like college campuses, shopping malls, airports and business parks. With low operating costs, pods can be tested in the market and moved until a sweet spot is found.

Our Traction


Bobacino has already built a fully-functioning prototype!


We have brought to life a new first-of-its-kind boba experience, with creativity, curiosity and accessible luxury as cornerstones of our brand.

Bobacino is a uniquely fun experience and customizable product!

What We Do


Creative and fun, yet simple. Delicious and stylish, yet affordable.


The sleek Bobacino stand features a boba dispenser, taps for teas, milks and sweeteners, an ordering screen for customers to choose their perfect drink, a 6-axis robotic arm, a cup sealer and a pick-up window.

The photos included are of Bobacino's first functioning prototype and is not currently available on the market

Boba Dispenser: Delivers fresh boba pearls

Taps: Serves brewed teas, chilled milk & sweeteners

Ordering Screen: Select a drink & customize it to make it yours

6 Axis Robotic Arm: Your personal, robotic Bobarista

Cup Sealer: Safely seals your drink

Pickup Window: Grab your drink & enjoy


Gif 04

All that’s needed to operate a shop is a Bobacino machine, one part-time employee to restock ingredients and a smart device!

*Part-time employee needed for restocking ingredients only

The Business Model


Low cost, high quality, and high profitability


Our business model is about keeping operational costs low and quality high. Bobacino units are 16 square feet in size, fully-automated and can be stationed almost anywhere, from college campuses to shopping malls to airports and business parks - we believe this makes Bobacino the perfect partner for boba shops to expand their reach.  

While most coffee shops have about 10 employees (source), Bobacino only requires one part-time employee, allowing for much lower operating costs. And while traditional coffee shops have about a 4.2% profit margin (source), we expect Bobacino profit margins to be 31%!

How We Are Different


Everything we love about boba, minus the hassle of running a shop!


By removing the expensive overhead of real estate and labor, Bobacino’s compactly designed Boba machines help existing boba shops bring affordable, high-quality Boba to high-traffic areas.

Bobacino delivers the most value for partners through low startup and operating costs. While opening a traditional sit-down costs $200k-$375 thousand per new location (source), Bobacino only costs $50k. We believe the time to launch a boba shop can take up to one year, whereas Bobacino only takes a week or two. Because our machine is only 16 square feet and fairly easy to transport, the location options are nearly limitless! 

The Vision


America’s favorite bubble tea

Our goal is to expand boba consumption in the US by partnering with boba shops to provide an alternative treat & moment of escape beyond the typical specialty coffee experience. We will do so through key partnerships in new channels and geographies, while helping existing shops increase consumer adoption through innovative delivery of customizable drink experiences. 

The photos included are of Bobacino's first functioning prototype and is a computer generated rendering not currently available on the market

OUR LEADERSHIP


A tight-knit team of innovators make up the mastermind behind the machine


Bobacino is headed by CEO Darian Ahler, along with a diverse team of four men and women with expertise in engineering and marketing. The Bobacino team consists of three engineers who have worked together to create our finished product: an interactive, stylish, fully-capable, automated boba machine that we can’t wait to introduce to the public!

Why Invest


The future of boba starts with Bobacino


As boba grows in global popularity toward an estimated $8 billion dollar value in 2024, it is time that this fun and classic drink becomes more accessible to the American consumer. We love the excitement of drinking boba, but we also know how expensive it is to run a high quality boba shop. We teamed up to create Bobacino because we believed that there was an easier way to help boba shops build a community of boba enthusiasts and deliver a variety of amazing flavors that would maximize the luxury of the experience while minimizing costs.

Today, we are proud to say we’ve done it and we can’t wait to debut our fun, stylish and interactive product to the public. Big things are coming and we hope you’ll join us in creating a new paradigm in boba history!

Less than 72 hours left to invest! Bobacino’s press coverage!

10 hours ago


Our campaign is coming to a close in just 72 hours, and we want to make sure you have a chance to invest in Bobacino while you still can! One of our favorite parts about this round was seeing the excitement and enthusiasm for Bobacino from our community. We want to thank you for following our campaign, whether you are an investor, a potential customer, or someone who just loves Boba and robots (who doesn't!?). 


Today we wanted to bring you a roundup of all the recent press we've received. From news segments to articles about our current partnerships, the positive coverage we've seen is incredible!


Let's look at some of the press highlights:


Hospitality Technology - “Contactless transactions are here to stay, and demand for low-touch, easily accessible beverage options remains high; the [PopID] partnership will offer consumers the ability to pay with their face at the beverage retailer’s automated boba locations and on mobile devices.”

– Anna Wolfe, Hospitality Technology


The Spoon"If having a boba drink made by a robot wasn’t futuristic enough for you, soon you will be able to pay for that bubble tea with your face."

-- Michael Wolf, The Spoon


Bobacino on KTLA! - We hosted KTLA’s tech report Rich Demuro for an exclusive demo of Bobacino. In this “Rich on Tech'' segment, we got to showcase our fully robotic boba cafe. Check out the segment to watch our prototype in action!


Fast Casual"The makers of Bobacino, a robotic machine designed to dispense boba tea, an Asian beverage projected to jump from $5.3 billion to $8.7 billion globally by 2024, are betting on an automated kiosk that prepares and serves the refreshment in 16-ounce cups."

-- Elliot Maras, Fast Casual


We love to see that so much of the industry is excited about something we're passionate about! If you're pondering an investment in these last 72 hours but have a few questions, make sure to join our FINAL INVESTOR WEBINAR Friday at 10 AM PT (1pm ET)!

Bobacino expands reach of local business owners!

1 day ago



We're based in Santa Monica, CA, so we’re lucky enough to have multiple delicious boba shops just a block or two away! However, we noticed that the same concentration of shops that are on the coasts wasn't available inland. We believe this is due to the high retail and labor costs prohibiting Boba shop owners from opening new locations in untapped markets. A new shop can cost anywhere from ~$200k - ~$375k and may take up to 12 months to open! This is a significant risk operators must face when choosing their next location.


Bobacino makes it easy! A new Bobacino pod costs just a fraction of the traditional opening prices and can be up and running in just 1-2 weeks! Bobacino's design also allows for easy relocation. If operators see a better location for Bobacino to be stationed, the small, 16 sqft pod allows for easy mobility and deployment in high-traffic locations. Not to mention, the reduced cost to open means operators can expand their footprint by opening more than one Bobacino!


Many boba shops in the US are family operated, and Bobacino is here to help local business owners expand their reach with lower risk and higher profit margins.

We love working in such a unique industry, and we hope you get the chance to grab a piece of the growth! Invest in Bobacino today, and make sure to join our upcoming webinar for any questions you may have!


We’re hosting a live investor Q&A with Bobacino’s CEO Darian Ahler joined by Stacey Kwong, Chief Boba Officer and Strategic Advisor. Make sure to join us on Friday, Oct 29th at 10AM PT, 1PM ET! Sign up here before space fills up!

Offering Closes in One Week! Top Reasons to Invest in Bobacino!

5 days ago


We're closing in on the final week of our crowdfunding opportunity on StartEngine! So far, we're thrilled with the excitement and passion we've seen for Bobacino, and we're looking forward to a strong close. With just a few more days to go before we close, we wanted to bring you the Top 3 Reasons to Invest in Bobacino!


Rapidly Growing Market - After quickly becoming a staple drink in Asia, Boba quickly hit a global market value of over $4B and is expected to increase to over $8B by 2024! Despite the worldwide popularity, we think that Boba in America is heavily concentrated on the coasts, primarily due to the high costs of building and operating a physical store. Bobacino allows Boba shop operators to expand into these untapped regions with the reduced labor and retail footprint costs of running a machine. We're thrilled to be adding new growth potentials to an already hot market!


Partnerships and Advisors - When we started to develop Bobacino, we knew we needed to tap the expert knowledge of industry professionals to make a perfect product for the customer. We were thrilled to bring on Milk + T's co-founder, Stacey Kwong, as our Chief Boba Officer and strategic advisor! This year, we also announced our partnership with PopID, a contactless payment solution we plan to integrate directly into our machines. This partnership will provide customers with a genuinely efficient and safe experience when purchasing a drink. These partnerships will ensure the success of Bobacino as we go to market.


A New Way for Boba Shops to Operate - Individual Boba shops are at the heart of the success we've seen for bringing this delicious drink to the United States. By offering a new way to sell their drinks with drastically lower operating costs, these shops can expand their business to new untapped markets without being bogged down by high retail and labor costs.


These are just some of the reasons to get excited for Bobacino. To learn more, we will be hosting a final live investor webinar on our last day, October 29th at 10AM PT. Join Bobacino's CEO Darian Ahler and Chief Boba Officer Stacey Kwong to chat about the future of Bobacino and the US market. Are you pondering investing but still have a few questions?

Investor Frequently Asked Questions - Part 2!

7 days ago



We’re back with another segment of frequently asked questions! Bobacino is perfectly positioned to take advantage of a projected $8 billion dollar market, and move forward at full speed! If you're pondering an investment opportunity in Bobacino, but have a few questions beforehand, we hope these will help. 

 

How many cups of Boba tea can be made by each stand/booth per day? What's the max capacity?

Bobacino can make 200 cups with its current capacity before running out of ingredients. As we continue through product development, we will be looking at ways this number can be increased through efficiencies. 

 

What are the average monthly costs to run a Bobacino pod?

Initial investment for a pod is $50K with a leasing option available. Given the small footprint of our automated pod, labor and real estate costs could be up to 60% lower than a traditional brick and mortar boba shop. We believe that these new operating numbers are revolutionary and will allow brick and mortar boba shops to expand their footprints!

 

In the event of an incident or disaster (ie. power outage), how do you plan to recover and maintain ongoing operations? Is there a process or strategy for this?

 In the event of a power outage, Bobacino would stop operating and remain closed until being restocked with fresh ingredients and reset. The outage itself would immediately trigger an alert to facilitate the resolution of the issue as quickly as possible.

 

We hope these questions provide some clarity on Bobacino and provide you with an answer. Our goal is to expand Boba consumption in the US by providing an alternative treat & moment of escape beyond the typical specialty coffee experience.

Bobacino and PopID Partnership Garners Press Buzz!

29 days ago

We recently announced that Bobacino will be partnering with PopID to offer consumers a faster, easier, and safer way to pay. This integration will unveil a whole new type of contactless service. We’re thrilled to be developing at the cutting edge of tech innovation!


We aren’t the only ones that are excited! Check out these articles reacting to the recent announcement! 

FoodBeast - “The global pandemic has forced many businesses and restaurants to switch up their traditional models, with many pivoting to accommodate contactless ordering systems and also less face-to-face contact in service. Bobacino, a boba tea startup that is a standalone, fully integrated system and dispenser, looks to be a part of that trend by partnering with PopID, a facial recognition payment company.“

 – Reach Guinto, FoodBeast


Kiosk Marketplace - “PopID's PopPay facial recognition solution as a payment method on the same screen they view Bobacino's menu and place their order. Through an opt-in only system, the customer's face will be scanned and authenticated to dispense the drink.”

– Elliot Maras, Kiosk Marketplace

 

Hospitality Technology - “Contactless transactions are here to stay, and demand for low-touch, easily accessible beverage options remains high; the partnership will offer consumers the ability to pay with their face at the beverage retailer’s automated boba locations and on mobile devices.”

– Anna Wolfe, Hospitality Technology

Customizable Ordering

2 months ago

Four simple ingredients, so many possibilities.

If you’ve been following Bobacino you already know that Boba is one of the fastest-growing categories in the premium drink market and it's made from just four simple ingredients. At Bobacino our goal is to help boba shop owners accelerate the adoption of this classic drink in new markets across the US by leveraging smart automation and an intuitive ordering interface to give customers the perfect Boba experience.  

The automation that powers Bobacino is much more than a delightful experience for customers. It also means drinks can be made fresh 24/7 just the way customers like it. Any Boba enthusiast will tell you nailing the perfect mix of milk, boba pearls, and flavored syrup makes all the difference, and with Bobacino’s customizable ordering features customers can create their perfect drink. Maybe it’s extra boba, less flavored syrup, or a simple combination of milk and tea, either way, Bobacino makes the drink perfectly every time.

Small Footprint means Big Opportunity

3 months ago

Many boba shops in the US are family operated, and Bobacino is here to help local business owners expand their reach with lower risk and higher profit margins. How do we do that?

Bobacino was designed with two key features that allow for maximum flexibility: small size and transportability

  • Compared to a traditional boba shop, Bobacino is ultra-small. Its footprint of approximately 16 square feet provides a critical advantage for deploying in high-traffic areas like university campuses, shopping malls, and airports. 
  • Our engineers have also designed Bobacino pods to make relocation feasible. This flexible deployment presents a paradigm shift, allowing operators to consider location dynamically as they seek to understand product-market fit and optimize revenues.

Q:  How fast can the robot make one cup?

A: Bobacino can create a fresh boba tea in under two minutes.

Q: How is the boba cooked in the machine? How do you maintain the freshness and quality of boba?

A: Our product team is currently collaborating with industry experts on best practices for cooking and storing fresh boba pearls. The proprietary nature of this process prevents us from sharing specific details, but high-quality, fresh ingredients are non-negotiable for us!

Q: Do you plan to offer multiple options for milk/tea?

A: We are exploring different milk and tea options, but plan to offer a variety. Our initial drink offerings will include Chai Chai, Pearl Grey, and Matcha Maker.

Q: How will the operators be notified if there is an issue with the machine? How will troubleshooting work?

A: Bobacino cafes will be connected to the internet allowing operators to monitor performance and inventory levels. The robotic components of Bobacino are rated for industrial use and require very little maintenance, but technicians will be on-call to troubleshoot if the machine goes into an error state that it can't resolve itself. Regular maintenance and restocking will be able to be performed by operators.

Q: How will Bobacinol help potential franchisees mitigate rising costs for ingredients ie: Boba?

A: Our benefit to potential franchisees is to reduce labor and facility costs as well as operational complexity. We will also build partnerships with suppliers based on economies of scale and pass those savings onto our franchisees.

Bringing Boba to New Markets in the US

4 months ago

The bubble tea market continues to grow, but unless you live in a densely populated coastal area you may not have noticed. In fact, 15 of the top 25 cities with the highest ratio of boba shop to resident are in California alone!  With around 3,400 boba shops mostly concentrated on the coasts, we believe there is still a huge untapped market of boba consumers within the US which puts us at a great advantage for massive market capture!

Many Boba cafes are owner-operated, and while there are some large national brands operating hundreds of shops, most are family operations with one to three locations. In a market full of small family businesses, capital to expand into new markets may be hard to come by, which makes Bobacino the perfect partner for operators to expand:

  • By significantly lowering the cost to launch and operate and generating higher profit margins compared to a traditional shop, we believe Bobacino empowers small business owners

  • At 16 sq ft, our machines can be deployed almost anywhere and can be moved almost anywhere giving small business owners a lower risk option to move to new markets.

Live Investor Webinar and AMA on June 22nd

4 months ago

Join us on Tuesday, June 22nd at 10am PST for a Live Investor Webinar featuring Bobacino CEO, Darian Alher, and 3 other disruptive startups from some of this year’s fastest-growing markets. Attendees will get an inside look at how Bobacino is using automation to create a new paradigm in the fast growing bubble tea category. Plus, Darian will conduct a live investor Q&A after the presentation. Registration is free, but space is limited!


Check out the full slate of featured start-ups:

  • Bobacino - We believe we are the world’s first fully automated Boba cafe. Despite worldwide growth and popularity, we believe that Boba in America is highly concentrated on the coast primarily due to the high costs associated with building and operating a physical store, making it hard to expand into untapped markets.

  • Blendid - Blendid builds robotic and AI-enabled food automation solutions. The company’s first product, a fully autonomous robotic kiosk, crafts healthy and delicious smoothies that are made fresh-on-demand and customized to individual taste and nutrition preferences.

  • Obvious Wines - Obvious Wines simplifies wine through education and transparency. Built on the foundation of simplicity and sustainability - they aim to make it easier for you to enjoy wine, and its culture.

  • PvP.com - PvP is the first true gamer social community. Our suite of apps and plugins allow gamers to build squads, share streams, and get discovered across their favorite games and platforms.


We’re looking forward to having you join us on the 22nd. There are a limited number of seats available for this webinar -- reserve your spot today.
