Many of Lollicup’s 200+ employees came to show off their company to family and friends.

Excited, casually dressed employees and their loved ones checked in, asking about all the event had to offer.

A giant white tent sat above seating for guests, tables full of soda-making ingredients, snacks, and tons of water.

Panda Express and Tacos were served to hungry attendees, and Mustache Mike’s Italian Ice helped take the edge off of the California heat. The DJ played party favorites as adults and children enjoyed all of the inflatable activities offered.

Giant plastic zorb balls—which are essentially human sized hamster balls—rolled around the premises and an inflatable slide and boxing ring were also available to the guests.

Children excitedly made their way to the free face painting clown, and came out with brightly colored faces and elaborate balloon sculptures.

Tours of the production plant were held and showed the PET cup making process, as well as the paper cup forming process. Many were intrigued by the machines’ ability to mass produce products so quickly.

Toward the end of Family Day, Lollicup CEO and co-founder Alan Yu spoke about the success and growth of the company and the hard work that has gone into its success.

This year so far, Lollicup has experienced significant growth and is already expanding its warehouse space in Chino, CA after only one year of the U.S. plant’s production. Lollicup also has plans to expand in other areas of the United States.

Lollicup, a big success at NRA Show

Lollicup USA NRA booth

Lollicup USA featured both Tea Zone and Karat products.

Lollicup USA, Inc. showcased a variety of Karat and Tea Zone products at this year’s NRA Show.

The annual show, held in Chicago by the National Restaurant Association, is one of the largest in the restaurant industry. There were more than 2,000 exhibitors, ranging from giant distributors to small businesses.

Lollicup had a large booth set up on the showroom floor that emphasized tons of great products, including the eco-friendly Karat Earth product line.

Karat Earth display at NRA

Karat displayed many products, including it’s eco-friendly line.

Lollicup is determined to help its customers reduce their carbon footprint through its line of polylactide (PLA) plastics.

Karat Earth also displayed its line of plates, bowls and hinged containers made from a sturdy material called bagasse – the remaining fibers after sugarcane is removed from its stalk.

With all of these earth-conscious products available, Lollicup is proving itself to be at the forefront of the trend of environmental sustainability.

Samples of beautifully crafted, brightly colored slushes made with Tea Zone syrup and juicy popping pearls were handed out to guests. Some were curious about the boba-shaped pearls while others were already knowledgeable about the product. Guests who were new to popping pearls were stunned at the somewhat startling, but delicious, burst of flavor.

Lollicup’s presence at the event was a huge success! Keep an eye out for Lollicup at next year’s NRA Show for more Karat and Tea Zone products.

Did you know that Dole soft serve is not only dairy free but gluten free and vegan as well? This delicious treat is a wonderful alternative to traditional soft serve and offers several delicious fruit flavors. We got to try the new lemon flavor today and we loved it!
