Founded by Philbert de Torres, his sister Zabrina Gabriel, and their long-time friend Justin Umali, the first Ninja Bubble Tea first opened to the public in Coquitlam in September 2013. Their shared passion for sports, bubble tea, and helping their community has turned Ninja Bubble Tea into the cornerstone of the Coquitlam community.
Popular items on the menu include the Ninja Bubble Tea Ninja Mean ‘N’ Green and the Organic Fair Trade Local Roasted 100% Colombian Coffee.
The shop has been involved in helping many schools and businesses with fundraisers and charity events and has become a stepping stone for youngsters to find opportunities in the workforce. Ninja Bubble Tea has been called ‘The best bubble tea in town.’ With the newly opened store in New Westminster, the founders intend to continue their engagement with the New West community.
