3. KKOPI.Tea

I’ve been a franchisee of Alpha International Franchise and Trading Corp. for a year already. My parents and I franchise KKOPI.Tea unexpectedly. It was just a typical day for a medical laboratory science student back then. I was just trying to find a cafe and wanted to buy a coffee to keep me awake while studying. Surprisingly, we tried the Iced Latte and it was worth every penny. My parents and I talked about its concept, heard that it’s open for a franchise and the rest is history. Little did I know, KKOPI.Tea would ignite a different perspective in my life – a life outside my chosen course. Managing it with the help of my parents became my detox when acads drained me. KKOPI.Tea kept me sane and has brought drastic changes in my life. Indeed, it was one of my best highlights last year and I’m proud to be a part of KKOPI.Tea family.
