Do you ever find yourself struggling to find something to watch on Netflix? So many different shows and films to choose from and you end up watching Friends for the 100th time? You don’t want your customers to experience this, being so overwhelmed which the amount of choice they might not even purchase a drink! The Bubble Tea world can be a big culprit for offering so much choice to customers: Milky? Fruity? Tapioca? Pobbles? 50% sugar? No sugar? Grass Jelly?
Studies show that too much choice can result in regret with their choice thinking that a different option might have been better, reducing satisfaction with their choice. Psychologist Barry Schwartz, in his book The Paradox of Choice, believes that "choice no longer liberates, but debilitates".
