“For us here are Cupdepot, Thanksgiving brings particularly fond memories,” says Alan Yu, CEO of “It was a risky endeavor entering the cup and disposables industry. I remember during one of our first annual thanksgiving parties, someone jokingly said that because Lollicup needed so many cups, we should just make our own! This sparked a brainstorming session, which eventually lead to the launch of, a restaurant and bar supply wholesaler specialized in plastic cups and paper cups.” With roots in the beverage industry, understands that high quality cups are crucial for offering a high quality experience for customers. explains that in the very same brainstorming session, they decided that their hot cups must be of the very best quality and offer a large variety of add-ons to meet and exceed consumer expectations.

Widely used for coffee and tea, Cupdepot’s paper hot cups are double poly lined to prevent leaking and for added resilience. They come in a variety of sizes (from 4oz all the way up to 24oz) and designs. Naturally, the next products introduced were cup lids to help prevent spillage and cup jackets to keep drinks hot and protect hands from non-insulated cups. Cup lids are made durable, tough, and are resistant to heat, chemicals, and oil. Cup sleeves and jackets are a great solution for handing both hot and cold beverages.
