Liberty Coca-Cola Beverages, LLC announced today that it has closed its deal to acquire territory from The Coca-Cola Company across the New York Tri-State Metro area.

Liberty Coca-Cola officially opened its doors today, and welcomes more than 4,600 associates to its family. The new bottler’s areas of service includes the cities of Philadelphia and New York, part of Delaware, the state of New Jersey, Long Island, parts of Hudson Valley, NY, and Fairfield County, CT. Liberty Coca-Cola will operate four production facilities and ten distribution centers throughout the region.
