    A bubble tea chain with roots overseas is planning to open a second Boston-area location.

    According to an article in Eater Boston, Vivi Bubble Tea Cafe is looking to open a shop in Brighton, moving into a space on Washington Street in the heart of Brighton Center. The proposed new outlet would join another location in North Quincy along with a number of stores in the New York City area and some others elsewhere in the country. Based on the offerings at the North Quincy location, expect to see an array of bubble teas at the new place and possible some snacks such as popcorn chicken.

    Vivi, which started out in Taiwan, opened its first shop in New York in 2007, according to its website.

    The address for the proposed location of Vivi Bubble Tea Cafe in Brighton is 364 Washington Street, Brighton, MA, 02135. The website for the chain can be found at
