History of Coka-Cola
by Tyjwon M Baldwin
Where it started
Coca-cola started in 1886 when Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. John S. Pemberton decided that he wanted to make a drink he could sell to people so he made a flavor syrup and mixed it with carbonated water, it was called excellent by all the people who tasted it. Dr. Pemberton’s partner and bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson, is the one who created the name and logo that is still used today.
What happened next
Before his death in1888 Pemberton sold parts of his business to many groups but most of the interest was sold to Asa G. Candler and under his leadership coca cola was being sold in more than Atlanta even though in 1899 three business men from Chattanooga Tennessee bought bottling rights from Asa Candler for one dollar .
