Worldwide Boba Tea Brand Happy Lemon Targets Del Mar For Third San Diego Location

November 8, 2019

With more than 1,000 locations around the globe, boba tea brand Happy Lemon is increasing its footprint in San Diego with the launch of its third area location in Del Mar Highlands Town Center.

Founded in Shanghai, China in 2006 by Yummy Town Holdings founder Albert Wu - who also started such global brands as RBT Tea Cafe, The Spiceland, and Alma - Happy Lemon is a fast-casual bubble tea chain that now has branches in cities all over the world, including throughout China, United States, Australia, Philippines, Thailand, South Korea, and Thailand. Each outpost is designed in bright colors to create a happy & energetic brand image, and the menu is based around bubble tea and other flavored drinks made with quality ingredients.

Happy Lemon's first San Diego outpost launched on Convoy Street in Kearny Mesa last year and is the company's largest branch in the world to date. A second area location opened this past summer in the Eastlake community of Chula Vista. The third branch hopes to open by years end in Del Mar Highlands Town Center between Swirls and Optometry Cabana behind the PopJet Fountain + Amphitheater. In addition to a large selection of bubble teas, including the signature "rock salted cheese" varieties (creamy and enriched froth mixed with rock salt), this branch will also serve handheld eggpuff waffles. There will also be milk teas, lemon teas, boba teas, smoothies and other drinks on the menu.

Happy Lemon will be located at 12925 El Camino Real, Unit 26, in Del Mar. For more information, visit
