Maker Richmond Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Inc. Richmond, VA

Maker Details Around the turn of the century, James E. Crass moved his Coca-Cola bottling from a small plant in Charleston, South Carolina to Richmond, Virginia. The business quickly grew and eventually expanded to 42 franchises across the Mid-Atlantic. At the time of his death in 1930, Crass was one of the most successful owners in the Coca-Cola franchise network and even produced his own brand of soda.
