In Arlington, Olivia’s unique Rocketbelly bubble tea shop showcases her love for space and cats. It’s fueled by her earnings from modeling and acting, according to a Spectrum News 1 article saying,
“We can see her love for all things outer space and cats in the decor of her Arlington bubble tea shop she claims is the only one of its kind in Texas.
Rocketbelly is straight out of Olivia’s imagination, and her pocket.
“She really is the owner,” said Olivia’s mother, Mary Huynh. “She thought of the concept and runs the place. Most of the money we used came from money she’s earned in modeling and acting gigs.””
Rocketbelly offers Olivia’s favorites: bubble tea, chicken nuggets, curry, and cookies. Family-run, it emerged from a homeschool project to a bustling enterprise, according to a Dallas Morning News article reporting,
“Rocketbelly sells a smattering of Olivia’s favorite things — bubble tea, chicken nuggets, curry and cookies. The restaurant started as a lesson in business investments for Olivia’s home-school program but has blossomed into a real operation that’s run entirely by her immediate family members, who work 18-hour days, six days a week. Mary makes all the cookies, which come in a sugar rush of flavors: S’mores, candied bacon chocolate chip, blueberry vanilla lemon swirl, salty sea turtle and more. Joseph has a full-time job in cybersecurity, but he’s at the restaurant daily, frying chicken and stepping in when Mary isn’t there.”
Olivia dreams big, aiming for numerous stores across the country to spread happiness. Rocketbelly, her creation, resides in Arlington, welcoming patrons from 11 a.m. to midnight except Wednesdays.
