Revolutionizing Franchise Printing: Case Study of Teaspoon Life’s Success with Talient Action Group

In the competitive landscape of the franchise business, being efficient and consistent with your brand is a driver of success. Teaspoon Life, a leading boba drink destination, exemplifies how strategic partnerships and innovative solutions can propel a brand to national recognition. In this case study, we’ll take you into Teaspoon’s journey and their transformative partnership with Talient Action Group, revolutionizing their printing needs and operational efficiency. 

About Teaspoon Life 

Teaspoon Life began its journey in Los Altos, CA, and quickly garnered a loyal following, expanding its footprint across the United States. With over 7 million unique and delightful beverages served, Teaspoon has become a household name, captivating taste buds from the West Coast to the Midwest and East Coast. 

In late 2021, Teaspoon Life recognized the need to streamline their print materials across their expanding network of franchises. The marketing team (of one, at the time) had outgrown the shared folders of assets, managing every sale period change over and shipping of materials to each location, and all the headaches.  

This led to a strategic partnership with Talient Action Group to launch their Smart Print Storefront across 23 locations.  

The goal was clear: to simplify the ordering process for promotional materials and ensure brand consistency across franchises. 

Operational Process 

The implementation of our Smarter Print Storefront empowered individual franchisees to easily order materials as needed. Upon order placement, products undergo review by corporate administrators for brand approval. Once approved, orders then automatically proceed through Talient Action Group’s production facility, and ultimately ship within 3-4 business days. This process guarantees timely fulfillment and maintains brand uniformity across all locations. 

Equally important is the client service extended to not just the franchisor, but to all franchisees. The vast majority of print management challenges are alleviated with great technology, humans are still important to the process. That last minute franchisee still needs to chat through a rush order or discuss material needs for a grand opening. Talient Action Group’s team can help manage all those conversations so Teaspoon Life’s team can focus on growth.

With quarterly product launches orchestrated in close collaboration with marketing efforts, and the ability to think ahead of the competition, Teaspoon has also extended their offerings beyond just beverages – now offering an array of products, ranging from Pastry Cards to Seasonal promotional kits.
