The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Coke Zero is available in almost 14,000 fountain outlets, triple the number at the end of 2006 (4,500).

It's very cool to see Coke Zero do well.
It's pretty obvious that Coke Zero is probably
the best diet soda pop since Diet Dr Pepper.
It's all good.:)

Bottlers are now getting Zero BIBs, so expect to see it start showing up in small pizza shops, local c-stores, and other places with fountains where they get their syrup from the bottler.

Syrup concentrate for most commercial
soda fountains is BIB.

Found two fountains promoting CZ this week.

First, Royal Farms (c-store/gas chain). They sell a good bit of fried chicken, and this fountain is promoting their chicken, western fries (potato wedges) and Zero.

Second is a Wawa (another c-store/gas chain), promoting Eagles football and red/black/silver. This is one of those fountains with the small square buttons, with the flavor shot buttons in the middle.

anyone know how Coke Zero's did last quarter? i know they grew 25% last quarter, but I haven't seen any numbers for the quarter that just ended.

Double digit growth is all that I saw on Yahoo finance - the 14th consecutive quarter with double digit growth.

Coke Zero has come a long way.

Remember when it first launched and it was hard to find and we had to hoarde it. lol

A lot of us were afraid that Coke was going to abandon it like C2.

But, now, Coke Zero is an established Coke brand. We can pretty much find it anywhere, alongside Coke, Diet Coke and Sprite. I'm really hoping for a CZ to bow in the Top Ten sodas list this year.

Call me a soda sap. LOL
I get a rush when I see CZ in
vending machines.

Hi I'm from Argentina and when I read this post I think that this is an strange situation beacuse here, since Coke zero was launched (in 2007) was present in fountains, first in Mcdonald's (in fact I drank it for the first here) and nowadays it's almost in all fountains here...

Some things move slower in the American market because it's such a huge market, and companies are afraid to disturb the status quo (especially if the status quo is working in your favor).

Coke Zero is a direct competitor to Diet Coke, which is Coca-Cola's second-best selling soft drink. So they've been trying to figure out a way to grow Coke Zero without damaging Diet Coke too much. I'd say they've been overly cautious though. People who like Diet Coke... are still drinking Diet Coke. Coke Zero is for those people (like me) who never really liked the taste of Diet Coke.

Yes, but here it competes with Coca Cola light also and of course with Pepsi light and Pepsi Max...
