‘Coco’ Tea Spot Opens at 79 Division Street

Another Quickly location is out of steam. They’re all closing down – both the Grand and Pell Street franchises folded in the last year. You can add 79 Division to that list (formerly a Kung Fu Bing). As is often the case, the bubble tea dispensary quietly closed “for renovations” at the end of the summer. Paper found its way into the windows; something was definitely amiss. Store signage confirmed the new tenant a couple weeks ago.
In its place is more of the same – a tea and juice spot called Coco. The menu of concoctions is quite deep, offering choices like Honey Aloe Vera, Mango Green Tea, slushies, and smoothies. Price points are affordable, as no drink option exceeds six bucks.
The 79 Division store is the fourth overall location within the Five Boroughs, but first in Manhattan proper. According to the sign, though, it’s “worldwide no. 1618 store.”
