Companies to Watch: Coca-Cola

Industry: Food and Beverage

Headquarters: Atlanta, Ga.

CEO: Muhtar Kent

Coke's business is built on a franchise model. The Coca-Cola Company manufactures concentrates that are sold to distributors, who then go on to bottle, package and sell the product to the markets they represent. This means that there are three major players that comprise Coca-Cola's business operations in the United States.

The Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated (CCBC) is the second-largest distributor of Coke products in the states. Their territory covers most of the Southeastern United States.

Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) is the largest U.S. distributor of Coca-Cola products. Their territories cover the majority of the remaining U.S. markets.

In recent years Coca-Cola has experienced significant growth in its markets outside the United States. What this means for job seekers is that Coca-Cola is hiring at its headquarters in Atlanta, Ga., and its corporate offices around the world, in order to manage and oversee this growth.

Since CCE and CCBC both represent domestic operations, both companies are hiring for various local production and distribution centers, as well as for their respective corporate offices. Those interested in a career with CCE should check out their corporate webpage.
