The beverage known as Coca-Cola was invented by a pharmacist, John Pemberton in Atlanta, Georgia in 1886. Pemberton invented the syrup and then went to nearby Jacobs Pharmacy to add the carbonated water. Customers who tasted the first batch of the new beverage responded favorably, so Jacobs Pharmacy started selling it for five cents per glass. Pemberton’s bookkeeper, Frank Robinson is credited for naming the drink Coca-Cola, and for creating the distinctive Coca-Cola script, which is used as the logo for the both the soft drink and the company more than 225 years later.
Pemberton died just two years later. Reportedly sales of Coca-Cola at that time was nine glasses per day.
