GGP Inc. announced that boutique sweet shop Lolli & Pops will partner with the real estate company to open 30 new brick-and-mortar stores in GGP locations.
“Our regional shopping centers are the heartbeat of the community, and curation is a fundamental strategy,” GGP CEO Sandeep Mathrani said. “We’ve embraced working with Lolli & Pops because their philosophy coincides with our mission to provide a fun environment of search and delight.”
Chicago-based GGP owns and operates 127 retail properties across 40 states.

Lolli & Pops was first launched in 2012. It now has 38 locations and boasts a wide customer base that is dedicated to its confections, sweets and gifts from around the world. Exceptional service and hospitality enhance the customer experience as visitors enjoy the Lolli & Pops one-of-a-kind ambiance.
“The true power of brick-and-mortar retail is the ability to enrich products with emotional and physical context,” Lolli & Pops CEO Sid Gupta said. “At Lolli & Pops, our elevated in-store experience has been a key factor to our rapid growth, and we are excited to partner with GGP and play an integral role in their efforts to reinvent today’s shopping centers.”
