Care for the environment
Caring for the environment that we operate is one of the biggest challenges we face across the globe. At chaiiwala®, we are tackling these issues directly to ensure we remain as sustainable as possible. We are working diligently to ensure we recycle as much as we can – from our cups to reducing waste inside and outside our stores.
Going forward we have committed to reducing our carbon footprint by building greener branches and safeguarding water. We recognise that more can be done and we are doing our utmost to minimise our environmental footprint where we can.
Chaii for a Chaii
Alongside our bit to help protect our environment, we have also sought support from our staff via dedicated training programs and manuals. Many of our valued customers have also got into the action by helping us recycle their waste. We recently invested in the design and production of our “Cups for Life” to help reduce the amount of cup waste.
As chaiiwala® expands and more branches are open we have taken a firm commitment to ensure we try to be as green as possible with our construction and build. As a result, we have committed to using sustainable products and materials within all our new stores from our lighting to our heating.
Water is a precious and valuable gift and a key part of our daily operation. We have tasked ourselves to ensure we minimize water wastage where we can and this is now a key part of our training for staff and existing and future chaiiwala® franchisees to become responsible as much as possible.
At chaiiwala®, we are all about being responsible and taking responsibility. We firmly believe in sourcing the right product but even more importantly is knowing its journey. We have a made a commitment from the outset to ensure we source sustainably wherever possible – as much as possible.
We try our best to understand the ethos and attitude of every part of our supply chain to ensure our customers have that peace of mind they are also purchasing sustainable produce. We work with several local suppliers to give back to the community and help create the best food around in the most ethical way.
Where we can, chaiiwala® does its best to support local independent suppliers around our stores. We vehemently believe in giving back to the community we serve and helping as many businesses and individual as we possibly can.
Our approach to all of our drink products is to ensure a long-term supply of high-quality, ethically sourced ingredients which means we only source products that fit this criterion.
Our Store Products
All our products that are used in our stores are purchased by understanding the obligation of our suppliers to sustainability, social responsibility and their commitment to the community.
Making a mark in the community
Tea or Chai has the wonderful power of bringing people together. Our aim is to unite the communities that we operate. Every cup of chaii we serve represents the entire community we serve and the very foundations of the chaiiwala® business model.
Diversity and Inclusion
Since our inception we have championed the need to be an inclusive and diverse community. We exist to serve the community that we are part of which means the very nature of our existence has inclusivity and diversity at its core. Our aim is to welcome every member of society with open arms and create a culture that is warm, understanding and friendly.
The very nature of our business stems from diversity which means we are open to everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, disability, age, or religion. chaiiwala® is proud to be an inclusive company.
Our vision is make a positive impact in the communities we serve and change lives for the better – by giving opportunities to those who ordinarily would not have been given that chance.
As a company which is motivated by seeing others happy, we have an ethos of helping build careers. Wherever possible we want our team and staff to progress in life and in their job. This includes a chance to move up the ladder from the store all the way to running their very own chaiiwala® as an operator or manager. This is one of the main motivations for the management team of chaiiwala® and one we will strive to staying committed to.
