From our Family to Yours

Recently, we were excited to learn that Viking Coca-Cola Bottling Company was named “Family Owned Business of the Year” by the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce! From all of us at Viking Coca-Cola and the Faber family, we want to thank the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce for this honor! We would also like to extend our heart-felt congratulations to fellow 2015 recipients Luke Riordan at DAYTA Marketing (2015 Business Central Mark of Excellence: “Emerging Entrepreneurs”) and Larry Logeman at Executive Express (2015 St Cloud Area Small Business Person of the Year.) Cheers!

This award comes at a very special time for Viking and the Faber family.  This is the year we celebrate the 100th birthday of the Coca-Cola contour bottle, which has become one of the most recognized icons in the world! Also, 2015 is the year we want to better share our story with our customers and consumers.  Did you know that we actually make Coca-Cola right here in St Cloud?  Not only do we produce bottles and cans of Coca-Cola today, in fact we’ve been doing so since our inception in 1952!  So what’s the big deal?  Well, every time you grab a 20oz Coke, a 12-pack of Sprite or a 2-Liter bottle of Diet Coke, you know that it was made in St Cloud, by residents of the St Cloud area community!  We take great pride in producing the highest quality refreshments for the “thirsty” communities we serve.

We hope to share our story with you, not only on this site, but also in person!  To date, we have been hosting tours of our warehouse and production lines to area elementary, high school and college students, but moving forward we hope to welcome more members of our community.  We look forward to your visit!
