Co-franchisees Jennifer Conkle and Jennifer Milanesio are bringing the Texas-founded tea company to Peachtree City, GA. The two teamed up based on their entrepreneurial desires and look forward to their start as the firsts of this brand in the southern state. The exact location has not yet been disclosed.

“Bringing an iced tea focused brand to the peach state felt like the perfect move for us,” said Milanesio in a press release shared with What Now Atlanta. “Once we got our first taste of HTeaO when traveling in Texas, the stars aligned with us both, knowing how big this brand could get, especially in a state full of tea drinkers. We are excited to be the first franchisees to introduce the brand to Georgia and will consider expanding in the region over time.”

HTeaO prides itself on the quality of its product, using only fresh ingredients in a natural and clean environment. The tea brand offers 26 different flavors for patrons, with options caffeinated or decaffeinated and sweetened or unsweetened.

Customers also have the option to have their beverages hot or cold. In addition to several tea varieties, HTeaO offers grab-and-go snacks and homebrew packages so patrons can have a taste of HTeaO at home.

The Georgia location is a direct result of the brand’s growth strategy. HTeaO currently operates in 14 other states with 450 locations in locations, planning to increase that number to 500 locations by the end of 2026.

“Having Jennifer Conkle and Jennifer Milanesio join our growing franchise network happens at an exciting time as we are rapidly expanding into new and existing communities across the United States,” said Andrew Hawes, Chief Development Officer of HTeaO.
