    I think they are talking average transaction...$4.00 per person...I actually had a cup of S.B. the other day and it was only 1.60(first cup in a long time) Before I was at the casino my average was around $4.00 per trans.....and that was in a mall.

    I don't know if we are low but our average prices are as follows:

    Drip: 1.75-2.00

    Espresso: 2.50-3.50

    Smoothee: 3.50-4.25

    These are our drive thru prices. But as Topher says he was located in a mall. Overhead is a bit more in a mall location than what it would be in a drive thru.

    you are missing what I said...average per person...yes I was in a mall but if you buy a specialty drink and a muffin it goes somewhere around $4. Man you should have seen our average check at the casino

    Oops my bad... I thought the original question was what is the average cost for a cup of joe When you throw in a muffin that changes everything...Let's see add another $4 to the transaction...We have some damn good muffins Just kidding...Add about another $1.25 (muffin) to the drink and that would be our average...

    I've tried it once, wasn't impressed. Personally I don't like the taste. Seems to be somewhat popular in some of the small cafes here, but not in the drive thrus.

    The reason I was looking at bubble tea is ...
    (if I ever get done with my business plan)
    my coffe drive thru is in a big school dist.

    4 schools in 2 miles
    4 more within a 6-8 mile radius (that all have to come by my location)

    and I was looking for something for the kids...
    I've already got Island Oasis for fruit smooties lined up...
    just looking at other options...
