New boba tea and dessert cafe coming to Citrus Heights

By Mike Hazlip—
A new boba tea cafe planning to offer drinks and desserts is coming soon to Citrus Heights.

The independently owned KoBing Dessert Studio is slated to open at 6001 San Juan Ave. in a suite formerly occupied by BeanHeads coffee shop.

KoBing owner David Hong said he plans to offer ice cream, coffee, and boba tea. Hong said his wife, Sang Joo, had the idea to open the business. The remodel is nearing completion, he said, and Hong hopes to open KoBing in early April, putting his restaurant management experience to work helping Joo with running the business.

Real estate broker Daniel Muller of Century 21 Select Real Estate Inc.’s Muller Commercial team said the new tenant is currently working on interior improvements. Muller said KoBing will be similar to other boba tea cafes, following a popular market trend with an urban aesthetic in nearby Davis.

The suite was formerly the home of BeanHeads, but has been vacant since the coffee shop closed its doors last fall after just a year in business.

BeanHeads owner Tim Snipes did not provide a reason for the closure, but previously told The Sentinel that although Citrus Heights was slated to be his first location, he couldn’t pass on a Natomas opportunity when a fully equipped coffee shop became available on Del Paso Road. That location remains open.
