Interesting Historical Facts
In 1893 Caleb Bradham introduced Pepsi at his drugstore as “Brad’s Drink” in New Bern, North Carolina. Pepsi Cola, named after the digestive enzyme pepsin and kola nuts used in the recipe. Bradham sought to create a fountain drink that was delicious and would aid in digestion and boost energy.
Charles Guth, the President of Loft Inc.(candy manufacturer with retail stores that contained soda fountains), purchased Pepsi’s Assets with plans to replace Coca-Cola at his stores’ fountains after Coke refused to give him a discount on syrup. Guth and Loft’s chemists reformulated the Pepsi-Cola syrup formula.
The Coca-Cola Company offered to purchase the Pepsi-Cola company three times, and they declined. Pepsi-Cola declined Coca-Cola’s Senior Executive Harry Lees offer for $150,000, sparking competition between the companies.
