First listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1986, Coca-Cola Enterprises has a strong Coca-Cola heritage that dates back to the earliest days of Coca-Cola bottling in the late 19th century.

In 1899 – 13 years after Atlanta pharmacist Dr. John Pemberton began producing Coca-Cola syrup for sale in fountain drinks – two Chattanooga businessmen secured exclusive rights to bottle and sell Coca-Cola for most of the United States. 

Bottling Coca-Cola

Recognizing the need to create a bottler network, Benjamin F. Thomas and Joseph B. Whitehead, with the support of Chattanooga businessman John T. Lupton, began granting other entrepreneurs bottling franchise rights.

The first franchise began operations in 1901, serving parts of Tennessee and other nearby locations under the ownership of Mr. Thomas and James F. Johnston, grandfather of former Coca-Cola Enterprises Chairman of the Board, Summerfield K. Johnston, Jr. In the early 1980s, Mr. Johnston helped initiate a phase of consolidation designed to improve system efficiency and effectiveness.
