Urban Sips And Sweets – Gourmet Sodas, Shaved Ice and Lots of Yum. The Factory recently got a little sweeter with the new addition of the bubbly and irresistible Urban Sips. Founded by Brad and Holly Lauritzen, Urban Sips began in 2017 out of nostalgia. As a child, Holly enjoyed going to shaved ice stands with her father. These fond memories led the Lauritzens to create Urban Sips.
