Boba tea and mochi donut lovers, get ready!

By Dallas City Paper Staff

Locally owned and operated bubble tea concept, Fat Straws Bubble Tea Co., is opening a fourth location on Saturday, June 1 in Richardson.

In addition to a new location, Fat Straws will become the first business in Texas to offer house-made Mochi Donuts, alongside their well-known milk teas, infusions, brews and blends.

These unique donuts originated in Japan. They are made with mochi flour (a Japanese rice flour) and are known for their crisp exterior and chewy interior.

Each hand-dipped mochi donut will be made using the freshest ingredients including organic strawberries, organic blueberries, and ceremonial grade matcha.

“Over the last 16 years we’ve really tried to stay focused on what we do: make great bubble tea,” says co-owner Terry Pham. “We’ve been searching for something to complement our product, but nothing has stood out. That all changed last year when I had my first Mochi Donut. And like all of the amazing experiences in my life, we had to share it.”

The Richardson store will serve as the commercial kitchen to produce the donuts daily and prepare them for delivered to the three other locations – the original store in Plano, the store on Alpha near the Galleria and the store on Preston at Forest.

The Richardson grand opening event will be held on June 1 from noon to 10pm.

The first 100 guests will receive a prize envelope with a items ranging from a free t-shirt to a $50 gift card.

The first 200 guests will be entered into a raffle to win Fat Straws for a year (1 drink for 52 weeks).

There will also be a Plinko Board with prizes like re-useable straws, t-shirts, free drink cards, free donut cards and much more.

Fat Straws in Richardson is located at 1251 West Campbell Road, Suite 230.
