Back in June 2012, Lollicup Coffee & Tea announced plans to open five more stores nationwide and its first international locations in major Chinese cities. The first stores in the expansion are scheduled to open in October and November located at Chengdu and West Los Angeles, respectively.
“We are proud to further our global brand image while introducing our signature menu in new markets," says President and CEO, Alan Yu. The first overseas addition will be located in Chengdu, China at the popular shopping neighborhood of Cheunxi Road. Equipped with open kitchens, the 3,000 square feet store will serve Lollicup Coffee & Tea’s signature boba drinks, snacks and desserts, as well as introduce Lollicup Coffee & Tea’s tea lattes, snowfluff, and waffles. Lollicup Chengdu is scheduled to open on October 10, 2012.
In the U.S., Lollicup Coffee & Tea will open in West Los Angeles at the heart of the trendy Japanese area, “Little Osaka” located on Sawtelle Boulevard. The 1,149 square feet store will feature a special limited menu to reinforce Lollicup Coffee & Tea’s quick service and is scheduled to open in November 2012. Lollicup West Los Angeles’s limited menu of signature boba drinks and snacks will include five fresh fruit beverages that range from a creamy naturally sweetened Honey Avocado Milk to an exotically refreshing Tropical Juice with Mango Popping Pearls. The fresh fruit beverages are currently only available at the following select locations: Alhambra, Riverside, and Rowland Heights (Nogales).
