The City of Menifee is thrilled to announce “Monsta Snow” as the June Business Spotlight, a program that is a part of the Economic Development Department’s B3 (Building Better Businesses) program.
Monsta Snow is a family-owned boba tea and dessert shop. Owners Brian and Laura Spencer opened its flagship location in Murrieta in 2017. In 2022, they opened their second location, “Monsta Snow too,” to bring their love of boba tea and Asian desserts to their hometown of Menifee. Monsta Snow offers cold brew tea, milk tea, freshly made boba soaked in brown sugar and honey, as well as a variety of creamy and milky-flavored Taiwanese snow (similar to ice cream, but lighter). Monsta Snow also offers a bubble waffle, which is a popular egg waffle street snack that can be found throughout Hong Kong. They use this as a base for the Taiwanese snow, almost like a waffle cone. Additionally, they serve savory eats such as fries, cheese curd, lumpia, crispy tofu, and much more.
Laura Spencer, like many after college, was not certain of what her future entailed and began working at a boba shop. Ten years later, after starting a family and moving to Menifee, Laura still felt a strong connection to working in the boba industry. The calling to share the Asian culture and its delectable desserts with their beloved community became evident to her, and Menifee presented a wonderful opportunity to fulfill this passion.
Monsta Snow’s sweetness extends further through their support of the younger generation, and they have also created a space for those with interests in Asian culture. Monsta Snow has hosted multiple school and club fundraisers, donated rewards for students and school programs, as well as supported local sports programs. The business has also hosted multiple events including K-pop (Korean Pop Music) cup sleeve events and anime/car meets.
“Monsta Snow has been a valuable addition to our city. They have created a place for those with similar interests, allowing them to form a tight-knit community,” said District 2 Councilmember Ricky Estrada. “Thank you for contributing to a more united Menifee and for always going above the call of business.”
