Millennials and the country as a whole are cooking with more unique and natural spices and drinking more loose leaf tea than ever before – and Arizona is no exception. Savoring an opportunity for growth in the state, The Spice & Tea Exchange®, a gourmet, experience-based spice and tea retail franchise, has announced plans to bring 15 new locations to Arizona.

With a mission of 'Creating & sharing the experience of a more flavorful life', The Spice & Tea Exchange traditionally attracts community-minded franchise partners with a passion for food, tea and customer service as it expands around the country. The brand also succeeds in markets with a thriving, vibrant population of local foodies and year-round tourists, making Arizona an attractive region for growth. ScottsdaleFlagstaffChandler and Lake Havasu are among current target markets, with plans to add more.

Continued growth of The Spice & Tea Exchange is driven by the approximately four in five U.S. consumers who drink tea (including 87 percent of millennials) as well as the trend toward fresh and flavorful home-cooking.  The brand also is taking advantage of the popularity of experience-based retail shopping by immersing guests in a sensory experience, allowing them to freely explore the expansive variety of spices, teas, seasonings and gourmet gifts. Store associates will also hand-mix spice blends and guide guests through the aromatic product displays. In addition, many locations across the U.S. recently started offering a tea bar where guests can enjoy their choice of over 30 exotic teas.

Each store carries the following:

  • 140 spices
  • 85 exclusive hand-mixed blends
  • over 30 exotic teas
  • naturally-flavored sugars and salts from around the world
  • gourmet gifts and accessories

"In a digital world, The Spice & Tea Exchange customers appreciate an immersive, engaging shopping experience because it adds value and appreciation to the products they purchase. Guests are naturally drawn to our unique atmosphere and flavorsome aromas," said Martin Amschler, EVP of Franchise Development and Operations. "In Arizona, franchisees will greet an unmatched portion of the U.S. population, as the concept favors bustling urban shopping districts, well-known shopping centers, and popular tourist markets with high foot traffic."

The brand's franchise system is as diverse as the many flavors of spices, teas and seasonings featured at each store. Franchisees range from young entrepreneurs to seasoned corporate executives, small business owners to multi owner franchise veterans. As a franchisor, The Spice & Tea Exchange offers an attractive franchise onboarding package, extensive training, and unique opportunities including financial support from industry leaders and multiple revenue streams through retail and online sales.

As the franchise continues to grow, Amschler notes The Spice & Tea Exchange is looking for eager entrepreneurs interested in area development. "Between a growing demand for our products and a healthy, consistent consumer interest in food trends, there is great opportunity to grow in Arizona."
