Pepsi vs. Coke
Due to our staff's passion for Coke products, Coke was our first choice. However, we found that Coke required a minimum purchases, contracts, and required us to not to sell any other kind of drink product (other than Coke) Keep in mind, this is information that we received over the phone from a Coke rep as well as other Coke customers, nothing in writing. We were in the process of saving up for a machine of our own (to avoid all the red tape) when a Pepsi rep showed up.
To make a long story short, Pepsi just installed an 8 head soda fountain as well as a soda gun. All that was required of us was to purchase our concentrate from Pepsi. We still serve bottled Coke, IBC, and Crush.
