World of Coca-Cola
Backstory and Context
After about 16 years of being located near the Atlanta Underground, the new Coca-Cola building brings in even more features to highlight the story of the company's founding, growth, and current reach.
The World of Coca-Cola is divided into several sections. To learn about the history of Coca-Cola, visitors can wander through a museum setup in the building. Other sections include a photo-op with the Coca-Cola bear and a 4-D movie room. There is also a tasting room, where visitors can sample various types of Coca-Cola from around the world.
Coke was first invented by an Atlanta pharmacist named John S. Pemberton in 1886. When another Atlanta pharmacist, Asa Griggs Candler, took over the business after a few years of its start, the company boomed. In the second half of the 20th century, Coke became especially good at marketing its products. From new bottle designs to new beverages to the fact that it expanded its international reach, Coca-Cola quickly became the household name that it is today.
