Lollicup will debut its newly revamped coffee and tea concept, Lollicup Fresh, with a grand opening celebration at 1380 S. Fullerton Road Suite #101, Rowland Heights, California on June 21 at 12:30 p.m.

The Lollicup Fresh concept features drink options such as fresh smoothies and juices. Guests knowledgeable of Lollicup Coffee & Tea locations will recognize its signature items such as Boba Milk Tea and Popcorn Chicken as well as new menu items focusing on fresh ingredients, such as Grapefruit Green Tea.

To celebrate the grand opening, Lollicup Fresh will offer all 16-ounce drinks with any amount of add-ons for only $1 per drink. Select snacks such as Fried Calamari, Fried Tofu, and Popcorn Chicken are Buy One Get One Free. Other promotional festivities will include a ribbon cutting ceremony and a spinning prize wheel offering free Snow Fluff, $5 gift certificates, branded water bottles, or branded reusable tote bags.

The café’s décor includes a backlit sunflower on the ceiling and seven 46” high-definition flat panel televisions displaying the menu, promotions, and TV programs. Beginning June 21, hours of operation will be from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm Sunday through Thursday and 11:00 am to 12:00 am Friday and Saturday.

This weekend’s Lollicup Fresh grand opening will be the first of its concept with plans to open an additional four stores by the end of 2014 and additional 10-20 stores nationwide in 2015. The expansion plan for 2014 includes three stores in Southern California namely Orange County, San Bernardino County, and Los Angeles County, and another in Las Vegas.

Lollicup USA also has plans to increase production at its headquarters in Chino, California. After two months of successful production of disposable plastic cups, Lollicup USA started distributing its Karat line of “Made-in-USA” cups to its customers in May.

Due to the efficiency of Lollicup USA’s high-speed German equipment that allows Lollicup to manufacture up to one million cups per day, Lollicup has decided to expand its thermoform product line. Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where plastic is molded and trimmed to create a usable product. Thermoforming differs from injection molding, blow molding, and other forms of processing plastics. Thermoform benefits range from shorter lead times, cost-efficiency, and a large freedom of design.

Since Lollicup’s headquarters move back in October 2013 the company has hired over 80 new personnel and plans on creating over 50 more job opportunities by the end of the year. In the near future, Lollicup plans to bring its Karat manufacturing to the east coast of America.
