Happy moments of joy - if it really is, read on in the blog article…


Coca-Cola or the full name The Coca-Cola Company is a carbonated beverage that is sold in stores, restaurants, vending machines and elsewhere.

Coca-Cola uses about 200 brands - from Coca-Cola to Smartwater to Costa coffee. 

There's not much to add, but everyone knows what Coca-Cola is!

History of Coca-Cola

Jacobs Pharmacy

On May 1886, 8, Dr. John Pemberton taught the world's first Coca-Cola at the Jacobs Pharmacy in Atlanta, Ga. From this iconic drink, it has become a joint beverage company.

John Pemberton was inspired by simple curiosity. One afternoon, he stirred a fragrant, caramel-colored liquid and, when it was done, took it to a nearby Jacobs pharmacy.

The mixture was mixed with carbonated water, and everyone who tasted it agreed that this new drink is something special. At Jacob's pharmacy, it continued to sell for five cents (about 0,04 euros).

In 1888, Dr. Pemberton sold Coca-Cola to businessman Asa G Candler. Although it was invented by John Pemberton, it was actually a businessman named Asa Grigs Kendler who brought Coca-Cola to the masses. In 1888, he bought Coca-Cola from Pemberton for $ 550 (421 pounds) and traded it aggressively for millions. Under Mr Candler's leadership, Coca-Cola's distribution expanded beyond Atlanta.

In 1894, as the demand for Coca-Cola increased and the desire to make the beverage portable increased, Joseph Biedenharn installed a bottling machine in Mississippi. Bulk bottling took place only five years later, when in 1899 the exclusive right to buy Coca-Cola appeared. Three entrepreneurs buy sales rights from Asa Candler.

Coca-Cola name

The company's accountant, Frank Robinson, called the drink "Coca-Cola" because he thought the two C's would look good in commercials.

The name Coca-Cola is born from two ingredients in the drink: cocaine from the tree and caffeine from the cola nut (alliteration was considered more marketable). The logo has not changed much since 1886, except for a few adaptations. The Spencerian font used for the first time is still visible in modern design - the most notable addition was the wavy underline.

Coca-Cola design history

Bottle design tours began in 1915 and, as the company itself says, it is one of the most famous shapes in the world.

In 1899, two Chattanooga lawyers, Joseph Whitehead and Benjamin Thomas, went to Atlanta to negotiate the right to bottle Coca-Cola. And Thomas and Whitehead wanted to take advantage of the drink's popularity by bottling it so that it could be drunk outside the shops. 

The Coca-Cola Bottling Company began franchising the right to fill Coca-Cola bottles in cities across the United States. Sales of both machines and bottles continued to grow, and this popularity led competitors to try to imitate the famous Coca-Cola brand in order to mislead the public into buying their drinks.

The bottles used in those days were simple rectangular bottles, usually brown or clear. The Coca-Cola company demanded that the bottle fillers print the famous Coca-Cola logo on each bottle. However, competing brands such as Koka-Nola, Ma Coca-Co, Toka-Cola and even Koke have shared or only slightly modified the Spencerian script logo. These bottles of competitors created confusion among consumers. While The Coca-Cola Company prosecuted for these violations, cases often took years, and bottlers constantly sought greater protection.

As a first step for bottlers, in 1906, The Coca-Cola Company introduced a diamond-shaped label with a colored trademark to highlight offenders. Unfortunately, Coca-Cola was often sold in barrels of ice-cold water, which led to labels got lost.

The real design of the Coca-Cola bottle

On April 1915, 26, the trustees of the Coca-Cola Bottle Association voted for a competition to design bottles. 

The winner of the competition was The Root Glass Company, based in Terre Haute, Indiana. The design of the bottle onion was modeled on cocoa beans, an ingredient that is incorrectly considered to be Coca-Cola.

Interestingly, on the bottom of the bottle, had to print the name of the city that makes the glass order. These city names have entertained consumers for decades and made children compare which city bottle they have. It definitely happened collections.

I know that even today, there are people who collect Coca-Cola bottles from other countries where they have been. 

Coca-Cola ads and slogans

In the 1980s, unforgettable slogans such as "Coka it is!", "Coca-Cola classic" - "Red, White & You" and "Coca-Cola" - "Catch the Wave" appeared; "I`d Like to Buy the World a Coke." (I want to buy Coca-Cola to the world.)

In 1993, Coca-Cola experimented with computer animation, and the popular "Always Coca-Cola" campaign was launched in an ad series featuring animated polar bears. Each animated ad in the "Always Coca-Cola" series lasted 12 weeks from start to finish.

In January 2003, the slogan "Coca-Cola… Real" was introduced. The campaign and slogan, in turn, reflect the true, authentic moments of life and Coca-Cola's natural role in them.

The Open Happiness campaign was launched in 2009, the main message of which is a call to interact around the world to stop, refresh with Coca-Cola and continue to enjoy some of the simple joys of life. Open Happines has been featured in stores, billboards, television sites, and print advertising along with digital and music components.


Open Happiness was demonstrated at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, followed by the 2010 social media expansion, Expedition 206, an initiative in which three lucky ambassadors travel to 206 countries in 365 days with one task: to identify that makes people happy.

Every year, there is a child waiting for Coca-Cola ads and promotions - a bottle under a cork, a bow tie and a Coca-Cola caravan. The first trucks, the Coca-Cola convoy, were not even real. It was an advertisement created in 1995 by the American agency WB Doner and Featured. 

2001: It's no longer just advertising. After many years of monthly advertising, the Christmas caravan became real, starting with a real trip to the United States. "Christmas is a family season, and that's the caravan's advertising spirit," said Ted Rian, a Coca-Cola employee.

In 2010, Great Britain gets its own caravan. The driver's trip debuted in the UK after a successful experience in Germany and across Europe. Millions of people have followed the journey, from villages to seaside towns.

In 2017, after more than a million kilometers and more than 300 stops around the world, the first Coca-Cola Christmas Truck begins its first journey across Australia.
