Migoto Boba Tea is not Amanda Cui’s first business venture, but so far, it has been her most popular.
Cui first entered New Canaan’s competitive retail scene back in 2016 with Funky Monkey, which she described as a “high-end kids’ store,” but decided to shut the business down as the COVID-19 pandemic approached, just two years after it opened.
Last August, Migoto first opened its doors at 168 Main St. across from the New Canaan Library, and since then it has found itself many regular customers. Cui attributed the success to the “artificial free” ingredients used by the store. “Everything is real fruits, real ingredients,” she said. “The customers keep coming back, they stick with the same drink, they like it so much.”
A former New York City resident, Cui moved to New Canaan with her family eight years ago, seeking as safe as possible an environment for her children.
