"Manufacturing in the U.S. is gaining traction. More and more companies are bringing manufacturing back, and more and more consumers are looking for American-made products. Consumers trust the quality and are very supportive," stated co-founder, President and CEO of Lollicup USA. "We moved manufacturing from Asia to the U.S. because we saw the increasing demand of American-made products and a trend of consumers having a preference for these products. The cost of labor in Asia has also risen significantly and there are too many uncertainties."

The 300,300 square-foot facility houses the company's offices, distribution, and a new state-of-the-art production plant, which features automated high-capacity and high-speed German equipment allowing Lollicup to manufacture up to one million cups per day. Plastic pellets are mixed with recycled plastic and melted to liquid form, then rolled to a flat sheet and cut to size. No materials are wasted as any excess plastic used to form the plastic cups are reused.
