Corporate history[edit]

In 1902, the company that later became Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated was founded by the current chairman's great-grandfather, J. B. Harrison.[3] That company was merged with other bottlers to form Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated in 1973.[3] The company was incorporated in 1980,[1] acquired Wometco in 1985,[3] and acquired Sunbelt Coca-Cola in 1991.[3]


While the Coca-Cola Company owns approximately 27.2% of the company's stock, the Harrison family beneficially owns shares representing about 91.8% of total shareholder voting power.[1]
