A new eatery has officially landed in the Town of Herndon.

Tapioca Express, a national chain that serves bubble tee, coffee, juices and snacks, celebrated its opening on Saturday (Feb. 11) in Junction Square. The business takes up corner, ground-floor space at the residential development.

It’s located at the former location of VB Juice Bar (702 Elden Street, Suite A), a restaurant that served smoothies, açaí bowls, and cold pressed juices.

Through March 3, the business is offering a buy one get one free promotion for crispy chicken platters, milk tea and regular tea.

The location is currently only open from 4-9 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 9 p.m. on weekends. Items on the menu include crispy chicken, coffee, spring rolls and chi chi fries.

Tapioca Express claims to be among the first boba tea chains in the U.S., launching its first store in California’s San Gabriel Valley in 1999. The Herndon franchise appears to be the only one in Virginia, though the company previously had a location in Centreville that has closed.
