The Spice & Tea Exchange® was founded in 2008, by a group of talented individuals with a passion for life and food. What started as a small shop St. Augustine, Florida, has quickly grown into a nation-wide franchise powered by flavor, passionate franchise owners, and a desire to bring flavorful ingredients to your kitchen. Our franchise owners are the #1 REASON for what we do, and our team is a close-knit family you’d enjoy sitting with around the dinner table.
Through the years, we’ve grown exponentially with one mission in mind:
“To provide a unique spice, blend, salt, sugar and tea shopping experience; to generate excitement by immersing & educating our customers in rich, vivid sights, smells & tastes; and to share our passion for cooking and dining excellence.”
To be considered for a The Spice & Tea Exchange® franchise, potential franchisees are required to have a minimum of $60,000 in funds available to invest and a minimum net worth of $200,000.
The Spice & Tea Exchange® establishment packages vary depending on location and include a full line of opening inventory and necessary equipment needed for effective store operations.
