When Dr. Perberton concocted the syrup he decided to take a jug of it to a local pharmacy, Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was sampled and rated “excellent” by costumers. Then it was put on sale for 5 ¢ a glass.
In 1882 Mr. Candler boosted the Coca-Cola ® syrup sales up ten times more. On January 31, 1893 Coca-Cola ® registered in the United States Patent Office. In 1894 the first manufacturing plant outside of Atlanta was opened in Dallas, Texas. Others were opened in Chicago, Illinois, and Los Angeles, California.
By the time WWII broke out Coca-Cola ® was bottled in 44 countries, on both sides of the conflict. Robert Woodruff made it possible that every person in uniform get Coca-Cola for 5 cents no matter where they were.
