Frequently Asked Questions Here are some of the questions people ask us most often.
What is the difference between Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated and The Coca-Cola Company?

The Coca-Cola Company develops the soft drink products, produces the advertising and programs to support those products and sells syrup concentrate to CCBCC and other bottlers. As a bottling company, we combine the concentrate with other ingredients to manufacture and package our refreshing beverages.
