About Us

Lollicup USA Inc., doing business as Karat® by Lollicup™, is a manufacturer and distributor of single-use disposable products primarily used in a restaurant and foodservice settings.

We were founded in 2000 by Alan Yu and Marvin Cheng in San Gabriel, California as Lollicup USA Inc., a California corporation. Considered a pioneer for the bubble tea business in North America, our business grew rapidly from a single Lollicup Tea Café store in 2000 to more than 60 stores in 2006. In 2013, we sold off the retail bubble tea business to one of our shareholders. In 2014, as a result of a growing demand across the foodservice industry for our packaging goods, we began manufacturing products under our Karat brand in our Chino facility.

In 2018, we formed Karat Packaging Inc. as the parent and holding company for Lollicup USA Inc.
