Brampton-based Daniel’s Chai Bar has announced a new pop-up location which will be opening at Vaughan Mills near Toronto on March 1st, 2022.

This will be the second location for the quick service beverage concept, which opened its first store at Bramalea City Centre in late 2021 under the new branding of ‘Daniel’s Chai Bar’. The founder’s former brand was called ‘T by Daniel’ and that was retired during the pandemic as a shift towards the new franchise model.

“This is the beginning of an extensive growth plan for Daniel’s Chai Bar in which we will pop-up in specific retail locations, test the market and if the demand and LOVE is there… we will push for a permanent deal,” said Founder Daniel Lewis.

Daniel’s Chai Bar has signed a three-month long lease with Vaughan Mills in a vacated Starbucks located near the Legoland Discovery Centre. With Starbucks having consolidated its operations in the mall to a single location, the second location has been converted into a valuable pop-up asset.

The Vaughan Mills Daniel’s Chai Bar location will feature an enhanced menu of offerings and has given Lewis, the Tea Jedi of Daniel’s Chai Bar, an opportunity to test new concepts and store layout designs.

Lewis has also announced that the brand will be opening up a pop-up location at Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga and has extended its lease at Bramalea City Centre for an additional six months.
