World Of Coca Cola

History Of Coca Cola

Coca Cola started out in 1886. Dr. John S. Pemberton invented the first famous drink. He was a pharmacist however Frank M. Robinson was the man who came up with name. He also created the trademark and distinct script still used today. The cost was only 5 cents per glass and they only averaged around 9 glasses a day in Atlanta compared to the now 1.9 billion globally.

In 1894, the growing demand for Coca‑Cola and the desire to make the beverage portable, Joseph Biedenharn decided to install bottling machinery in Mississippi becoming the first to put Coca‑Cola in bottles.

When marketing came around they decided to market Coca Cola by using coupons. The coupons promoted free samples of the beverage and was then included in the daily newspaper.
