North American Bottler expands distribution territory

Coca-Cola Bottling Co Consolidated (CCBCC), an independent Coca-Cola bottler in the United States, has recently agreed to take on more distribution territory.

Since May 2014, CCBCC has taken on territory in 11 states and also purchased manufacturing facilities in Maryland, Ohio and Virginia.

It still expects to exchange distribution territory in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi for distribution territory in parts of Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi.

This is a commitment from The Coca-Cola Company to accelerate re-franchising efforts in North American bottling territories that have been under its ownership by the end of 2017.
