HTeaO Announces Expansion Into San Antonio, TX

Updated: May 10, 2018

(San Antonio, TX) San Antonio, TX will be home to HTeaO’s newest franchise. HTeaO is excited to welcome General Echols, CT & Kayla Echols and Billy Echols to the HTeaO family.

When visiting with General about what drew them to HTeaO he told the story of how “The first time we drove by it was before business hours, so no crowd; but the look of the building and the property just struck us as a quality place our first call was to our nephew and his wife in San Antonio. CT and Kayla Echols had been talking about starting an iced tea and water business from scratch because they recognized a need in San Antonio and had enjoyed a water/tea business in Amarillo before moving to San Antonio. We called and asked them to visit HteaO.com and really consider a franchise and the rest is going to be history! They not only agreed, but CT's brother, Billy Hurt, will be a partner and General Manager for their first store in northwest San Antonio.”


When asked “why San Antonio” CT said “San Antonio’s HTeaO will be host to a unique market of individuals from all cultures and backgrounds. The idea of taking a concept that was born and bred in a small Texas town and applying it to a big city excited us”.


HTeaO will include it’s custom tea bar with 22 flavors of sweet and unsweet iced tea and will also feature a full line of YETI merchandise and healthy snack options featuring Project7, Clif Bars, Clint & Sons Beef Jerky and many other options.


The San Antonio store will also feature a “Tea Brewing Station” which will put the tea brewing process front and center and allow customers to watch the Brewmaster siphon brew tea all day long.


“After spending the better part of the past decade creating systems and building a franchise infrastructure we are excited to lock arms with the Echols family to bring the vision and the customer experience of an HTeaO store to San Antonio” says Justin Howe, President & CEO for HTeaO.
