CoCo Tea Conquers Cebu City

Look who’s growing and staying in Cebu?

It’s CoCo!

In a matter of six months, CoCo Fresh Tea and Juice has launched two branches in Cebu City and soon they’ll be opening their third branch by the second quarter of next year.

“We are overwhelmed with the response of Cebuanos for CoCo. In fact, Cebu City was one of the most requested area the we have received for CoCo to be present in, and when SM Seaside opened in Cebu, we knew that this is the perfect location to build our flagship store in Cebu,” Larry Evans Tan, General Manager of CoCo, shared in a huddle with Cebu media at the CoCo SM Seaside branch.

Since CoCo Tea opened its flagship store in SM Seaside last March, it has since become a favorite hangout place of many Cebuanos, old and young alike. They opened a second branch in Ayala Center Cebu only last month just to keep up with the demand for CoCo blends from the Cebu market.

“We felt that the CoCo brand and the Cebuano lifestyle are a perfect match. Cebuanos are known for their love for good food and having a fun, relaxed vibe. They also love to hang out with their friends and families and these are exactly what CoCo stands for,” Tan shared.

Just recently, CoCo was awarded the Favorite Milk Tea brand in the Philippines, truly a testament of its leadership in the milk tea market segment.


The CoCo bestsellers which have now become favorites of the Cebuano customers are the Panda Milk Tea, 3 Buddies, White Pearl Milk Tea and Passion Fruit Tea Burst.


The Chocolate Caramel Cream Slush which Tan described as “Waves of caramel blended with chocolate slush over velvety salty cream making it a drink that is decadent for the local palate.”

Chocolate Caramel Cream Slush is a blend that’s exclusive and created for the Philippines.

Tan is very optimistic with the future of CoCo among Filipino milk tea lovers and continues to respond to clamor for more branches nationwide.

“We continue to explore expansion to other areas and bring CoCo closer to our customers. At the same time, we also try to come up with new flavors that we know our customers would love,” Tan said.

What’s also awesome about CoCo, they have partnered with Grab Food delivery in Cebu so for those who have cravings for some CoCo blends, they can just order via the app in a snap!
