The run came as a surprise. After the operator of the Glattzentrum had promoted the sesh offer on TikTok, all 400 bubble teas were sold out in one day.

Two super trends = one hype. Last week, the SV Group-owned restaurant Sesh in the Glatt shopping centre in Wallisellen near Zurich put bubble tea on the menu. A TikTok video of the Glatt operator triggered a run.

400 portions of bubble tea were sold in Sesh in one day. This means that the stock in the Bowl concept of the SV Group once used up. At Sesh, people are happy - and wait for supplies together with their guests.

"Anyone who thinks they can ignore social media is sorely mistaken," concludes SV Switzerland press spokeswoman Manuela Stockmeyer from the latest sales hit. However, one must always use and meet the right channel and the appropriate address for the target group. Here, the short video platform TikTok was obviously the channel of choice for the bubble teas in Sesh.

The sweet drink trend comes from Taiwan and has now gained a foothold in Europe for the second time. Classically green and black tea are the basis, mixed with fruit syrup or - if desired - with milk. However, the bobas create a furore and the magic: small pearls made of tepioca, whose texture reminds a little bit of gummy bears. These basic ingredients make for an enormous variety of bubble teas. You can constantly reinvent them and mix them differently according to taste and preferences.

In Sesh, four varieties were chosen: Strawberry Matcha (9 SFR), Taro Boba (8 SFR), Caramel Boba (8 SFR) and a Minty Strawberry (7 SFR), which turned out to be the guests' favourite. The fact that SV Schweiz's bowl concept is well-positioned is shown, among other things, by 1st place at the Best of Swiss Gastro-Award in the International category.
