1899-‘Coca-Cola’was created in 1886 in
Atlanta, Georgia and until 1899 was only sold as a fountain drink at soda fountains and local drugstores. With the growing popularity of the brand, there was an opportunity to bottle and
distribute. The 1899 glass design is inspired by the green Hutchinson-styled bottle produced by the Biedenharn Candy Company. It is said that this bottle may have been used to bottle’Coca-Cola’
between 1894 and 1900.
1916-From 1900-1916, straight-sided bottles in brown-amber&flint clear glass were designed for crown closures and distributed with a diamond-shaped label. The Company decided to create a distinctive bottle shape to ensure people that they were actually getting a real’Coca-Cola’. The shape of the contour bottle is inspired by a
cocoa bean and designed by the Root G lass Company of Terre Haute, Indiana. The iconic ‘Coca-Cola’contour bottle was patented on 16 Nov 1915.
1955-Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald’s restaurant on April 15,1955, at 400 North Lee Avenue in Des Plaines, Illinois. 1955 represents the beginning of a successful global partnership
