Chelsey is a wife and mom of four. Before opening Brick City Boba, she received her bachelors in psychology and human resources, was a fully licensed investment banker, a branch manager at a local bank and spent 10 years in the banking industry. Her husband, Kyle, is in the US Army Special Forces. During one of his assignments, Kyle's travels took their family to Japan for six years where Chelsey discovered and fell in love with boba. She considers coming to Sanford as the best move they have ever made. When she isn't working, Chelsey loves to read, write and spend time with her family.
Brittany is BCB's Co-owner. She was born and raised in central NC and moved to Sanford in 2010 with her husband and 2 children. In addition to co-owning Brick City Boba, she is also a Pre-school teacher at a local Christian school. Before BCB, Brittany was an insurance agent for fourteen years and was a stay-at-home mom for six years. When she is not at the shop, Brittany enjoys being outdoors-camping and hiking. She also loves photography, crafting, and attending church where she volunteers in the children's ministry.
After her time in Japan, Chelsey was having to travel to Raleigh or Fayetteville for boba and knew she wanted to open her own boba café in Sanford. During Covid quarantine, she started planning to open a small shop. However, she quickly saw the support and excitement she received from the community, and decide to ask Brittany for help. Even with no prior knowledge of boba, Brittany immediately stepped in and was at the shop every day. Soon after, she decided to become a partner and has never looked back.
Chelsey says it has been one of the greatest blessings of her life to open a shop in Sanford and meet the thousands of people that have walked through their door. She truly believes in giving back, especially to the place that makes them feel like a part of one large community of people with shared values.
