A week-long celebration of the first Coca-Cola bottling kicked off today at the Beidenharn Candy Company Museum.

Coca-Cola was first bottled in that building in 1894, 130 years ago, by the Biedenharn family. Today, Coca-Cola employs over 80,000 people and has since become one of the best-selling brands in the world, claiming the number one soft drink in the world in 2010.

At the ceremony today, a special marker has been unveiled commemorating the event. It will be placed near the Biedenharn Candy Company.
