Bubbling Up


Abstract:
The soft drink industry has a long history in North Carolina. The state is the birthplace of Pepsi, 104 years ago, and Cheerwine, 85 years ago. The Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated has been here for 100 years. Rafferty examines this industry, which in 1997, created over 50,000 jobs, and generated $4.5 billion in sales and $7.3 million in taxes and charitable donations.
