DFW-based chain Fat Straws, known for its chewy, colorful boba teas, will debut a new location in Richardson this week.

The newest Fat Straws is set to officially debut at 1251 West Campbell Road, Suite 230 on June 1, after quietly opening its doors for limited hours earlier this week. Founded in 2002, Fat Straws is a major player in the DFW boba tea scene, known for its Taiwanese-style milk teas spiked with perfectly chewy tapioca pearls, jellies, and more accoutrements.

At the new outpost, Fat Straws brings a new pastry offering to DFW in mochi doughnuts. Made with glutinous rice flour, these doughnuts have a chewier texture than the typical doughnut, and will be hand-dipped in toppings like ceremonial-grade matcha and strawberry icing. “Over the last 16 years we’ve really tried to stay focused on what we do: make great bubble tea,” owner Terry Pham said in a statement. “That all changed last year when I had my first mochi doughnut. And like all of the amazing experiences in my life, we had to share it.”

Fat Straws is currently “soft open” from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily until June 1, when it will open for regular business hours — Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
