WOONSOCKET – In Japanese, Kimochi also means “good-feeling.” That is why owners of Kimochi Boba Café, Dan Ayotte and Damaso Hernandez, decided on the name for their bubble tea shop located on Railroad Street in Woonsocket. Their original shop was in Attleboro, Mass.

“He put everything he had into this place,” said Gilbert Ramirez, store manager at Kimochi. Ramirez, from North Providence, was offered a job by his friend Ayotte.
