RC Cola is not just an American icon; one of the original American colas is also a legend with a history spanning more than 100 years.
Royal Crown Cola was born from the efforts of a young pharmacist in Columbus, Georgia. After a disagreement with a local soda bottler, Claud A. Hatcher began creating his own soft drinks. Never in his wildest dreams could he have imagined that his experiments would become an American icon affectionately nicknamed RC Cola.
Unveiling a series of industry firsts - the first aluminum cans, 16oz bottles, low-calorie and caffeine-free diet sodas - Royal Crown Cola maintained the same spirit of innovation established by its founder over a century ago and grew so successful it became a part of American popular culture featured in magazines, movies, and television shows.
Today, that same mindset personifies individuality and can be seen by looking no further than Royal Crown Cola International’s family of distinctive products. From the crisp satisfying taste of RC Cola… to the fresh and fruity burst of RCQ’s many diverse flavors… to our calorie-defying yet delicious diet colas… we continue to build on our history of success by offering a wide array of products, reflecting the wide array of individuals who drink them.
