Karat by Lollicup plans to move to a new 190,000-s.f. warehouse in Branchburg, New Jersey, by March 2020. The company is expanding on the East Coast due to its growth with East Coast clients.
Karat by Lollicup is a manufacturer and supplier of beverage and disposable foodservice products. Karat has been in business for nearly 20 years and employs 511 personnel at multiple locations throughout the U.S.
The company currently resides in a 40,000-s.f. warehouse in Avenel, New Jersey. It opened the Avenel warehouse in 2018 and has already seen the need to expand into a bigger space. The company is starting to grow throughout the middle of the U.S. and just expanded into a 490,0000-s.f. manufacturing facility in Rockwall, Texas.
The Rockwall, Texas, and Avenel, New Jersey, move is another sign of growth for Karat and will allow Karat to more efficiently service the middle and East Coast of the U.S. The New Jersey location currently services 20 East Coast and Midwest states: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. The new warehouse will allow the support, space and better logistics for servicing these states.
