Coca-Cola Consolidated has signed a five-year extension as the official non-alcoholic beverage provider of the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing.
Coca-Cola products have been served at the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing since the PGA TOUR event debuted in 1969 at Harbour Town Golf Links, 55 years ago.
“We are proud to be associated with such an iconic brand who has a history of helping others. Coca-Cola Consolidated’s continued support for almost a half century is unprecedented and has quenched the thirst of our loyal spectators and sponsors,” said Steve Wilmot, President of the Heritage Classic Foundation.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the Heritage Classic Foundation,” said Heather Hucks, VP of Consumer Connections. “Coca-Cola and RBC Heritage both have rich roots in the Lowcountry. For 55 years, we have been refreshing fans as the official non-alcoholic beverage provider at the only annual PGA TOUR event in South Carolina. We look forward to partnering with the tournament to positively impact the community through our sustainability efforts.”
Coca-Cola Consolidated developed a local program designed to help collect and recycle packaging from the tournament. Consolidated partnered with local organizations, like i2Recycle and Bluffton High School, to renew this recycled material into new packaging.
“The Heritage Classic Foundation’s partnership with Coca-Cola Consolidated continues to grow and positively affect the community. The tournament recycling programs we have implemented together have kept over 100,000 bottles and cans out of landfills,” said Wilmot.
The 55th annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing will take place April 10-16, 2023 over the famed Harbour Town Golf Links. Tournament tickets are on sale at www.rbcheritage.com.
Coca-Cola Consolidated has more than 1,300 teammates working at 7 facilities in the state, including a production center in Bishopville, SC, a cooperative managed by Coca-Cola Consolidated.
Coca-Cola Consolidated has added a 350,000-square-feet distribution center in Chesterfield, Va. creating more than 25 jobs. This will allow the company to better serve customers in central Virginia and the surrounding region.
“We are excited to continue our journey of growth in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said Leon Warner, Vice President of Manufacturing at Coca-Cola Consolidated. “This investment in expanding our distribution capabilities is a long-term commitment to improving how we serve the world’s best brands and flavors to our communities.”
Coca-Cola Consolidated is a tenant of Meadowville Technology Park, a project developed by Red Rock Developments in partnership with Westport Capital Partners.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Coca-Cola Consolidated as our tenant at Meadowville Technology Park,” said Leah B. Bailey, SIOR & SVP of Leasing for Red Rock Developments. “They will certainly add to the notable tenants in the park.”
Coca-Cola Consolidated joins Amazon, Niagara Bottling, Medline, Altria and AdvanSix, at the new industrial center situated on approximately 54 acres of land along Digital Drive, fronting Interstate 295 and Route 10 within Meadowville Technology Park. The state-of-the-art facility includes 36’ clear height, dock and drive-in loading, full site circulation, 185’ truck courts, and above market standard truck and auto parking.
“Best in class developments attract best in class tenants, and that continues to be the case here. Congratulations to Red Rock Developments on their completion of a remarkable project,” said Graham Stoneburner and Mark Douglas, SIOR, of Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer, Red Rock Developments representatives in the transaction.
