Q-Taste International, Inc., the franchiser of Q-Taste and Q-Cup restaurants, sold six unregistered restaurant franchises to the Chinese community. Q-Taste International failed to provide the franchisees with the offering circular, as required by state law. Based on Q-Taste's violation of state law, the California Department of Corporations revoked the franchise registration of Q-Taste International and issued a Desist and Refrain Order to Q-Taste's president.
Despite the revocation of the franchise and the termination of the qtaste.com website, many of the individual Q-Cup restaurants remain in operation under the Q-Cup name. Other former Q-Cup cafes have switched to the name Quickly.
