How a Field Trip at World of Coca-Cola can Benefit your Class

There is only one World of Coca-Cola, and it call Atlanta home. Seems likely, as Atlanta is the birthplace of Coca-Cola, and has been an iconic aspect of the city ever since. I know several Georgia natives who wouldn’t dare touch anything other than a Coca-Cola product. It’s quite noticeably the drink of choice for other area attractions and restaurants too. Coca-Cola has made its footprint in the beverage world and has clearly made a huge footprint that makes it hard for other beverage companies to fill.
