Paper cups

     Single Service Disposable
     Or foodservice disposables were first made at the beginning of the 20th century. The paper plate was the first single-use foodservice
     product invented in 1904.
     Dixie Cups
     Hugh Moore was an inventor who owned a  paper cup factory, located next door to the Dixie Doll Company. The word Dixie was printed on
     the doll company's front door. Moore saw the word everyday, which reminded him of "dixies," the ten dollar bank notes from a New Orleans'
     bank that had the French word "dix' printed on the face of the bill. The bank had a great reputation in the early 1800s. Moore decided that
     "dixies" was a great name. After getting permission from his neighbor to use the name, he renamed his paper cups "Dixie Cups". It should be
     mentioned that Moore's paper cups first invented in 1908 were originally called health cups and replaced the single repeat-use metal cup that
     had been used with water fountains.
