"Originally designed to ensure public health and safety, small disposable paper cones were manufactured and distributed by Leo Hulsemen, founder of the SOLO Cup Company in 1936.
Over the years SOLO produced a variety of products and materials, moving into plastics in the early 70s when SOLO first released the iconic red SOLO Cup, along with yellow and peach. The red cup was a success with families and businesses alike and has evolved into a full portfolio of branded products that bring people together for food, fun and good times.
SOLO is now a brand, not a company, but is a beloved iconic product line within Dart Container Corporation. SOLO’s devoted fans post over 400,000 photos a year of their good times with our products and we hope to continue to earn that loyalty."
