Toby Keith said it best...'Now a red solo cup is the best receptacle, for barbecues tailgates fairs and festivals....'

The creator of the Red Solo Cup died last week. Robert Leo Hulseman was 84 years old. Hulseman began working for his father’s business – the Solo Cup Company – at the age of 18. He worked his way to the top to become president and CEO and inventor of the Red Solo Cup.

It's not everyday a country star sings about a cup. But Toby Keith turned his love of the plastic wonder into a hit song in 2011.
