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.
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.
