Quickly (Chinese: 快可立; pinyin: Kuàikělì) is one of the largest tapioca milk tea franchises in the world, with over 2000 locations in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Quickly is the brand name of Kuai Ke Li Enterprise Co. Ltd., which was founded by Nancy Yang in Taiwan and started franchising.
Quickly Corporation was founded in California and started its trademark licensing program at the same time. Quickly began marketing themselves as a New Generation Asian Fusion-style cafe in the USA, as opposed to just a tapioca drink shop. Most locations offer free Wi-Fi internet access.
On May 17, 2008, Quickly officially launched their new age non-fat tart frozen yogurt at the SingTao Asian Expo. The frozen yogurt became available at their key locations the following week. In March 2010, Quickly officially launched their Hong Kong style egg puff (Chinese: 雞蛋仔; pinyin: JiDanZai) which became available at all their locations in Northern California.
Quickly stores in San Francisco became the center of former Supervisor Ed Jew's extortion controversy, where he solicited bribes estimated at $84,000.
Famous quotes containing the word quickly:
“A work in progress quickly becomes feral. It reverts to a wild state overnight. It is barely domesticated, a mustang on which you one day fastened a halter, but which now you cannot catch. It is a lion you cage in your study. As the work grows, it gets harder to control; it is a lion growing in strength. You must visit it every day and reassert your mastery over it. If you skip a day, you are, quite rightly, afraid to open the door to its room.”
—Annie Dillard (b. 1945)
“If Jupiter should hurl a bolt whenever men sin,
His armory would quickly be empty.”
—Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
“Man, so long as he remains free, has no more constant and agonizing anxiety than find as quickly as possible someone to worship.”
—Feodor Dostoyevsky (18211881)
