To the FAU community:
Happy New Year! We are very pleased to announce that Florida Atlantic University has awarded the Coca-Cola Company exclusive pouring rights. This exciting partnership benefits FAU students, faculty, staff and alumni through a wide variety of programs and initiatives.
Coca-Cola will be the exclusive vendor for all carbonated and non-carbonated beverages, juices, water and energy drinks in all of FAU's retail establishments, vending machines, catering and special functions. In addition to product sales, the University and Coca-Cola's relationship includes a robust marketing program, product samplings, new technology, and also features a commitment by Coca-Cola to develop internships and career opportunities for FAU students.
As part of its marketing and outreach efforts, Coca-Cola will be participating in on-campus student programs, athletic game-day events and other significant University-wide functions. Select vending machines are expected to accept credit cards and Coca-Cola will introduce new technology trends as well as the Freestyle machines.
The Coca-Cola Company is the world's largest beverage company, featuring 16 billion-dollar brands include Diet Coke, Sprite, POWERADE and Minute Maid. Coca-Cola is the No. 1 global provider of sparkling beverages, ready-to-drink coffees, water, juices and juice drinks. Coca-Cola also ranks among the world's top 10 private employers with more than 700,000 system associates.
You may see Coca-Cola on our campuses over the next couple of weeks as Business Services coordinates the transition. We appreciate your patience during this transition period.
We want to thank our partners at Pepsi for their support of FAU during the past 10 years. We would also like to express thanks to the faculty, staff and students who participated in the evaluation process.
