R.C. Cola

R.C. Cola (or Royal Crown Cola) was developed in 1905 by Columbus, Georgia pharmacist Claud A. Hatcher. The first product in this "Royal Crown," line was "Chero-Cola", followed by Royal Crown Ginger Ale, Royal Crown Strawberry and Royal Crown Root Beer. The company was renamed Chero-Cola, and in 1928 called Nehi[?] Corporation after its colored and flavored drinks.

In 1934 Chero-Cola was reformulated and rereleased as Royal Crown Cola. Later the company introduced the first diet cola, Diet Rite[?], and the first decaffeinated cola, RC 100[?]. In October 2000, Royal Crown was acquired by Cadbury-Schweppes.
