Our History

After years of market research in Taiwan, Lollicup® perfected its recipes and opened doors in 2000. The company’s founders did not anticipate how much the boba sensation would grow over the next decade. After continued success, Lollicup® introduced a new image in 2014 to present the fresh change in the Lollicup® look, recipes, and vision for the future.

Having been one of the first shops to introduce boba milk tea to Southern California, the Lollicup® brand has proudly stood the test of time. Lolllicup® prides itself on its handcrafted beverages, fresh snacks, and meals, but this is only a portion of the stores’ vision. It’s not just about creating the perfect food and drinks; it’s about creating an atmosphere that will give customers the ultimate dining experience.
