Why does Starbucks love Tulare County?

The answer is simple: for our cups and lids.

I just found out that International Paper in Visalia's Industrial Park, which makes hot and cold cups and lids, is the supplier for all Starbucks outlets on the West Coast.

The firm has recently expanded, added a blindingly fast cup printer and cup manufacturing machines, and now has 280 employees at the Visalia plant, according to the Visalia Economic Development Corporation.

So, the next time you order a double tall cappuccino, extra dry or whatever drink will get you through the day, don't forget your cup and lid was made right here in Tulare County.
