A refreshing Coca-Cola soda can quench thirst unlike any other drink. Coca-Cola Bottling of Hawaii, a part of the family-owned wholesale beverage distributor The Odom Corporation, brings the bubbly beverage to local retailers — with award-winning performance.

In 2022, Coca-Cola Bottling of Hawaii won Coca-Cola’s Market Street Challenge among bottlers across North America.

Joe Carter, vice president and general manager of Coca-Cola Bottling of Hawaii–The Odom Corporation, represented the Hawaii team onstage at the Market Street Challenge’s Qualifier’s Weekend in Puerto Rico.

“(Winning the trophy) means the world to our Hawaii team (and) is the best feeling a leader could ever experience,” states Carter.

What differentiates Coca-Cola Bottling of Hawaii–The Odom Corporation from the rest of North America bottling companies?

“It’s all about people, process and the community,” states Carter, adding that his team’s journey has been guided by “the principles of commitment, integrity, quality products and superior service.”

The Odom Corporation’s rich history can be traced back to 1932 when a determined young salesman named Milt Odom arrived in Alaska. Carter continues to lead Coca-Cola Bottling of Hawaii–The Odom Corporation toward excellence and to build upon the momentum of the distinguished win.

“We take pride in these traditions and are dedicated to maintaining them for generations to come,” he states.

Coke connoisseurs have another reason to celebrate. Coca-Cola Bottling of Hawaii–The Odom Corporation will be distributing a new Coca-Cola Spice in the new year: Raspberry Spiced flavored Coca-Cola, which will also be available in Zero Sugar.
