History of Pepsi
It was created in 1902
Caleb Bradham created, a unique mixture of kola nut
extract, vanilla and rare oils. People responded, and
sales of Pepsi-Cola started to grow, convincing him that
he should form a company to market the new beverage.
In 1902, he launched the Pepsi-Cola Company in the
back room of his pharmacy, and applied to the U.S.
Patent Office for a trademark. At first, he mixed the
syrup himself and sold it exclusively through soda
fountains. But soon Caleb recognized that a greater
opportunity existed to bottle Pepsi so that people could
drink it anywhere.
The business began to grow, and on June
16, 1903, quot;Pepsi-Colaquot; was officially registered with the
U.S. Patent Office. That year, Caleb sold 7,968 gallons
