Coke Bottling United Planning Expansion

Officials with Coca-Cola Bottling Co. United are looking at expanding in Chattanooga. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports the company is looking for land to build a new state-of-the art facility for distribution and sales. Officials say they want to invest $67 million in a 290,000 square-foot facility, which would add 43 new jobs over the next year. The Chattanooga Coca-Cola plant opened over a century ago and was the first franchised bottler of Coke. (MiamiHerald/AP)
