View Full Version : a few notes from western NC

This was along I-40 between Statesville and Asheville.

SE Atlantic handles some(all?) of the 3rd tier in this area, instead of Independent Bev. In addition to the C-S selection that I usually see from Independent, they also had caffeine-free RC and diet Crush orange. Sundrop was a Consolidated product with fridgepacks, 8oz cans and angle bottles (....not to mention much better visibility.)

if you're a Pepper and you pass through this area, you should stop in Black Mountain at Pepper's Deli. The entire restaurant is themed around DP and they have an incredible collection of memorabilia.

If you saw CF RC COLA AND DIET ORANGE CRUSH you were in RC Asheville area. I know of no seabev in in NC. Some products are tradered between bottles.

Seabev only has franchises in GA and FL. Anything outside of those areas is product that was sold to another distributor.

We have the same thing here in the Mid-Atlantic. Lots of Cro-Pac/Polar stuff, but distributed by others.

They must be trading like wildfire, I saw quite a bit of SEA products on the shelves.
