One of the best-known brands in the world is Coca-Cola. The soft drink first served on May 8, 1886, at Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta, Ga. has bubbled to the top over the past 131 years. In 2017, Coca-Cola is the world’s fourth most-valuable brand at $69.7 billion according to Interbrand’s Best Global Brands ranking.
