Two new Rockford businesses are set to open very soon in the Stateline - Culture Crunch and Kung Fu Tea!

I have been waiting for these two shops to open so I can get my hands on delicious bubble tea and try some unique snacks from around the world.

Culture Crunch is opening over by Valli Produce and Party City on Rockford's east side at 5846 E. State Street and Kung Fu Tea is opening at 6915 E. State Street next to Primetime Audio Video.

Two New Rockford Businesses Announce Grand Opening Dates For 2024

Culture Crunch announced on Facebook that they're set to open on Sunday, March 31st, but that's subject to change if select inventory doesn't arrive on time.

As for Kung Fu Tea, they didn't specify a set date, but according to other news outlets they're supposedly opening before April 2024.

I'm stoked for Kung Fu Tea because I haven't found a Boba tea shop in the area that really "wows" my taste buds.  It'll be interesting to see how their bubble tea compares to other shops in the area!

Their menu looks FIREEEEE, too!  Especially that Chai Milk Tea at the bottom right.
