CORINTH, MS, May 2, 2015 – Corinth Coca-Cola Bottling Works, Inc. announced today that it has expanded its territory in West Tennessee with the addition of the Jackson and Paris, Tennessee markets.

Consolidated.
H.L. “Sandy” Williams, Chairman of Corinth Coca-Cola Bottling Works, said, “By expanding our sales and distribution capability in West Tennessee, we are positioning our Company to continue to be successful for another hundred years. This expansion also aligns our Company with The Coca-Cola Company and its 2020 Vision for growth.” Kenneth Williams, President of the bottling company, added, “We are excited to build upon the solid foundation that has been established in both Jackson and its surrounding areas. We take great pride in providing the market with the highest level of customer service and look forward to developing strong, long-lasting relationships with the customers and consumers of West Tennessee.”
