Lucky Tea Cafe Small town cafe expands

Lucky Tea Cafe was looking for a new place to separate their sushi restaurant from there tea shop. The owner Rose had many ideas for new teas but no room to make it happen. The expansion led to a larger variety of new loose leave teas.

With only one shop, they had very little space to explore different things, such as, ice cream, loose leaf teas and a gift shop.

"With more space, I am able to add a bigger variety of loose leaf teas and a gift shop," Rose said. "I love loose teas, I used to only be able to have a few kinds. Now that we have expanded, I can focus more on my teas. I have more options and a bigger menu."

Lucky Tea's new location is the only secluded tea shop in Grand Haven that sells custom loose leaf teas.

"We don't have any companies competing in Grand Haven," Rose said. "I'm the only one doing it here so that's unique in itself. We have drawn a lot of new customers here because they know we sell specialty loose leaf tea."

In the last year Lucky Tea has grown immensely. They were receiving more business and with that came a need for more space.

"Before, we were combined with sushi and tea," Rose said. "My business kept growing and I wanted to separate the tea shop from the sushi restaurant."
