About The Company
PepsiCo is today one of the largest soft drink maker in the world. The company was founded by an American pharmacist named Caleb Bradham in 1902. Coca-Cola was already a brand at that time. Caleb was watching the popularity of Coca-Cola and decided to make his own soft drink in 1893.
Initially known as Brad’s Drink Brandham manufactured his own machine to produce it. The drink gained a positive response from the US community and then Brandham decided to advertise it and rename it as Pepsi-Cola. Pespi Cola grabs attention from the US market and Brad decided to begin exports in 1907.
The company then decided to expand its business and invested a good amount in the sugar business. However, it was a failed attempt as in 1923 the company was stated bankrupt. Loft Inc. acquired the company in 1931.
The new company reduced the prices to gain attention from the households. PepsiCo then decided to target the young generation after the war ended. A diet version of Pepsi was introduced in 1964. Furthermore, the company decided to start a marketing campaign featuring famous personalities such as Cindy Crawford, Lionel Richie, Shaquille O’Neal, Britney Spears, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, David Beckham, and Spice Girls.
