Leading Business of the Month Sponsored by South State Bank

Leading Business of the Month

As Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce's longest-standing investor, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated, has been sharing a Coke and a smile with fellow MBACC investors since July 1969. The "Official Soft Drink of Summer" business was named Leading Business of the Month for March 2018.

Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated is the largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the United States. The company makes, sells, and delivers carbonated and noncarbonated beverages, primarily products of The Coca-Cola Company. Their "purpose is to honor God, serve others, pursue excellence and grow profitably." Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated operates in the Southeast, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic portion of the United States, with a local office in Conway.

On June 25, 2010, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated celebrated providing refreshment to coastal customers by cutting the ribbon to officially open its newest warehouse on McKinley Shortcut Road in Horry County. The warehouse was previously located off Highway 501 in Conway.

The facility is used for both warehousing and distribution, and is located on a 6.5-acre site near the intersection of S.C. Hwy 22 and S.C. Hwy 905.

For those wondering "What is the difference between Coca-Cola Consolidated and The Coca-Cola Company?" The answer is Coca-Cola Consolidated is the nation's largest independent marketer, producer and distributor of Coca-Cola Company products. They also distribute Dr. Pepper and several other brands.

The Coca-Cola Co. develops the soft drink products, produces the advertising and programs to support those products and sells syrup concentrate to Coca-Cola Consolidated and other bottlers. As a bottling company, Coca-Cola Co. combine the concentrate with other ingredients to manufacture and package refreshing beverages. They then use the extensive Coca-Cola Consolidated sales and delivery force to market and distribute the soft drinks to retail customers and consumers.
