Video Blog: Episode 1-Local Production

January 5, 2016

We recently sat down with our C.O.O. Dennis Patrick to ask some questions about Locally Making Coca-Cola. Watch Dennis’ Video blog for more details!

Viking Coca-Cola was founded in 1952 by Howard Hamilton in Brainerd MN. Viking Coca-Cola is one of the largest Coca-Cola bottlers in the United States and headquartered in St. Cloud, MN.  We bottle, can, and distribute Coca-Cola products to over one-million people across our 10-branches. Our Branch locations currently are; Alexandria, Brainerd, Fergus Fall, Hutchinson, Willmar, St. Cloud, North Branch, and Marshall in Minnesota and Rice Lake and River Falls in Wisconsin.

Viking Coca-Cola is a privately held company, owned by the Faber family. The Faber family journey to ownership started with Joe in 1966, when he began as a route-driving salesmen. He fully immersed himself in the business and became sole owner in 1994; his wife, RoseAnn and son Michael became involved along the way. Today Joe's tradition and passion live on as Michael leads the development and success of Viking Coca-Cola through ownership and management.

We have evolved with the beverage industry to provide refreshments which include carbonated soft drinks, sports drinks, enhanced water, tea, juice, bottled water, energy drinks, coffee, iced coffee, slushies' and more.
