A new fizz: Coca-Cola replaces Pepsi on campus

cokeimageIf you purchase a soft drink on Palm Beach State College campuses, starting next week you will have to “taste the feeling” with Coca-Cola.

The College is poised to sign an exclusive five-year contract for beverage services with the Coca-Cola Company this week after a 15-year agreement with Pepsi. This means that only Coca-Cola Co. brands, including Dasani water, Powerade sports drink, MinuteMaid juices and Illy ready-to-drink coffee products will be sold on all campuses.

“Coca-Cola products will be phased in on campus beginning with the cafeteria and bookstore and then with our vending machines,’’ said David Chojnacki, PBSC’s procurement director. Installation of the Coca-Cola coolers may begin as soon as Friday.

The cafeteria at the Lake Worth campus will include Coca-Cola’s Freestyle 7000 beverage dispensing machine, allowing buyers to choose from more than 100 drink flavors using touch screen technology.
