MILKLAB is founded by Sandy Puishan Lam and Bin Chen.


Sandy is the founder behind the concept of drinks and branding, while Bin is the founder behind the concept of rolled ice cream. Together, they founded MILKLAB with the aim of combining their unique ideas to create a specialty dessert and tea cafe that focuses on using high-quality, fresh ingredients to deliver exceptional taste and experience to their customers.

The inspiration for MILKLAB came from the lack of non-powder based, organic boba tea options in North Carolina. They recognized this gap in the market and saw an opportunity to provide the local community with a premium and organic boba tea offering. Their passion for using fresh, natural ingredients drove them to establish MILKLAB and bring their vision to life.

At MILKLAB, we care.

The local community has been very supportive and warm to us; therefore, as a way to say thank you and give back, MILKLAB frequently hosts fundraising events with local organizations.


In 2018, the MILKLAB $1 event, where everything is sold for one dollar and all contributions are donated to the Rise Against Hunger Charity. We were able to donate over 8000 meals.

On World Food Day, our team participated in Raleigh’s Rise Against Hunger volunteer event and we packed over 1000 meals and the team had a blast doing so!


In our very own Wellington neighborhood’s Marla Dorrel park, we helped sponsor Kids Together Walk, Run & Roll Charity, which focus on improvements and enhancements to a park loved by the community.
