Tea Post Franchise Profit Margin

The profit margin is 50% in a Tea Post franchise. So there are factors which you can before acquiring the franchise-

  1. The franchise have a good brand name in North India (Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Maharasthra)
  2. It is preferable to open a franchise in Busy Market Area, High Streets, Highways, Commercial Hubs, Bus Depot, Railway Station, Institutes etc for high footfall.
  3. The franchise have effective pocket friendly prices, every product is under 100 Rupees.
  4. The franchise is maintaining a good quality along with the prices
  5. The management of Tea Post franchise is excellent but at the end the franchise owner have to maintain good behaviour with the customer and maintain good quality of food.

Let’s take an example to analyze the profitability of Tea Post Franchise-

ParticularsAmount (Small Outlet)
Gross Sales2,00,000 Rupees
Raw material @50%(100,000) Rupees
Rent(25,000) Rupees
Electricity and Water Supply(5,000) Rupees
Aggregator Commission(5,000) Rupees
Salary of Workers (3 workers)(40,000) Rupees
Royalty(10,000) Rupees
Company Charges(3,400) Rupees
Other Expenses(4,600) Rupees
Profit7,000 Rupees

The profit for Sales of 2,00,000 Rupees is only 7,000 Rupees which is very less. According to this example, if you open a Tea Post and generate a Sales of 1,80,000 Rupees then it will suffer a loss. So the Sales must be higher than 1,80,000 rupees per month to generate a profit.

The higher the Sales more will be the profit because fixed cost remains the same like rent, salary of worker’s amount will not change so frequently.

The profit margin is less due to high royalty and company charges charged by the company.

Initially, the franchise may suffer loss but after 1 year, The profit margin will increase approximately to 15%. (If Sales will be 4 lakh Rupees)

Tea Post Review

The initial investment of Tea Post is very high and returns on investment is comparatively very low. The profit margin is 5% in an outlet where every item cost under 100 rupees.

Even if the daily footfall of customers is very high still profit will be very low. I feel that the Royalty fee and interior cost can be reduced.

Right now, Tea Post is a customer centeric franchise which is a good aspect but it is charging high initial invest which is a bad aspect. It may take years to cover the initial investment.

The outlets are no doubt really awesome with great quality Tea and Food and great interior at a very affordable price range. I visited the Skit and IIM Ahmedabad outlets and the tea is actually good.

But the thing is that other tea franchises like Chai Sutta Bar and Tea Time that are giving greater value and profit to the franchise owners as well as their marketing programs are also the best.

Tea is a highly competitive franchise so the investment may be reduced if you consult with the Tea Post Customer Service regarding this matter.
