Coca-Cola was invented in 1886 by John Pemberton, but it was his bookkeeper Frank Robinson who named the soda and who's script handwriting the classic logo is designed from.
Coca-Cola's first year of sales grossed $50...a $20 loss for the inventor. It was Permberton selling the
Coca-Cola formula and advertising that saved the soda and made it what it is today.
*If you're wondering...I don't drink Coca-Cola, but find it's history very interesting and have collected several Coca-Cola items, vintage bottles, and fabric over the years :)
