How About a Coke? Book Now Available…..

September 10, 2013

A few years ago I posted about the book ‘How About a Coke?’ https://cocacolabottleman.wordpress.com/2009/11/09/another-good-read/

Since then I was able to meet the author in person, Frank Barron Jr.  He spoke at a recent Coca-Cola Collectors Club event and was well received.

The Barron family was a long time Coca-Cola bottler in Rome, Georgia as well as being involved in several other bottling plants around Georgia.  This is a personal look into bottling, the early years up to when they sold the business (and why they sold the business).  It has some very interesting details of bottling and puts a personal spin on it.  I think it is a book worth reading if you want to learn more about the bottling side of the business or just for some good detailed information on this North Georgia bottler.

A great book and I am so glad to see it available again. I’ve ordered a few copies earlier today, one for me and a few extra as gifts.

Here are a few links to order your copy:
