A popular Chico business is expanding by opening a second location. T Bar just finished construction on its new store at 555 Flying V Street off of Forest Avenue. The south Chico location will officially open its doors next Tuesday, April 1st. The shop delivers a fresh spin on teas, offering different blends and infusions that are sure to tantalize your taste buds. T Bar owner Shelly Blanshei says the original shop on Vallombrosa Avenue is constantly, busy and customers have been asking for a second location for quite some time. The new shop has some added features that set it apart from the downtown location.
“Our patio is the big idea because we have a lot of space. We wanted to have a beach feel, like you’re walking into an oasis. So, that's kind of what we were going after,” says Blanshei.
It is the only tea company that has fresh artisan tea on tap. The opening of the new shop will add 40 jobs, with the potential of hiring on more employees later this year. T Bar is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-9pm and Sundays from 11am-8pm.
