Fusion Teas experiences triples sales and expands commercial footprint in Texas

Fusion Teas, a locally owned family business in Texas with a brick and mortar shop, an e-commerce site and multiple Amazon bestsellers, is reportedly expanding to house rapid growth as more people turn to tea for both its solace and health benefits during the pandemic.

Fusion Teas was founded in 2010 and is owned and run by husband-and-wife team Thomas and Theann Egbert in McKinney, Texas. Their company mission is to spread health and happiness by selling quality teas while making loose leaf tea accessible—a healthy habit that people want to reach for every day.

When Covid-19 hit, online tea purchases in the US experienced a surge as more and more people reacted by adapting to a healthy tea lifestyle. Fusion Teas believes it is at the forefront of this new wave of tea consumption in Texas and the Four Corners, where most of the company’s tea is shipped. At the start of the Covid-19 crisis, Thomas and Theann Egbert noticed that their sales started spiking, and continued to spike. Theann Egbert said: “Our little family-run web shop has grown a lot in the last decade, but this really tops anything we’ve seen. People need what tea has to offer, and we’re proud to share our curated selection of truly delicious teas with folks in Texas, the Four Corners and beyond.”

The Egberts have had to adjust their operations in order to keep up with the demand. Thomas Egbert commented: “Our old space was only 800 square feet and we were busting at the seams. This new place is 2200 square feet. We’re renovating the space to include a modern retail shop for locals and visitors to McKinney and the greater Dallas area. It opens to walk-ins in July.”

Located at 1905 University Business Dr Suite 604 in McKinney, Texas, the new warehouse/storefront is in the same business park as before, but its size nearly triples the footprint of its former location. The modern design includes a glass partition between the retail space and the warehouse, allowing customers a view behind the scenes.
