Abstract:
In March 1915, The Greenville Chero-Cola Bottling Company opened at 708 Dickinson Avenue with owners Whit J. Hardee, pres.; Cary M. Warren, sect-treas.; and R. T. Cox. It was the third Chero-Cola Bottling plant built in NC. They bottled drink flavors of orange, grape, ginger ale, strawberry and root beer. The plant did not use city water (which was from the river) and had their own 92 foot well. In 1919, Samuel E. Gates and Whit J. Hardee came together and built a new building for the Chero-Cola Bottling Company with three storefronts at 712-714-716 Dickinson Avenue, known as the Gates-Hardee Building. In 1925, the Chero-Cola Bottling Company changed names to the “Nehi” Bottling Company. In the 1930’s the name changed again to the “Royal Crown-Nehi Bottling Company.” In 1957, the Royal Crown-Nehi Bottling Company opened a new plant on Mumford Road. After the bottling company left the Gates-Hardee Building, the space became the home of the Renfrew Printing Company. The building changed hands several times until bought by Ryan Webb in 2007. Ryan Webb, owner of the graphic design firm Seven By Design, is the publisher and editor of the Greenville Times Magazine.

Abstract:
Renovations to buildings in North Wilkesboro and Greenville uncovered murals bearing the brands of soft drinks, the latter still serving as a backdrop for nearby diners. They’re also a reflection of the long time importance of this industry in the region and families who helped to put Coke and Pepsi on the national map.
