Dr Pepper Snapple Group was established in 2008 following the spinoff of Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages (CSAB) from Cadbury Schweppes plc. CSAB had formed in 2003 by bringing together Cadbury Schweppes’ four North American beverages businesses, Dr Pepper/Seven Up Inc., Snapple Beverage Group, Mott’s LLP, and Bebidas Mexico, unifying more than 50 leading brands under a common vision, business strategy and management structure and solidifying the company’s position as the third-largest refreshment beverage business in North America.
Route To Market
DPS serves its customers and consumers via a route to market consisting of its wholly owned bottling network as well as third-party bottlers, distributors and brokers.
The company established its own bottling and distribution network in 2006 when it acquired full ownership of Dr Pepper/Seven Up Bottling Group, the largest independent bottler in the United States. Subsequently, the company acquired several other major independent bottling businesses, including All-American Bottling Co., 7UP Bottling Co. of San Francisco, and Southeast-Atlantic Beverage Corp. Adding to its finished goods (juices, teas, mixers) manufacturing footprint, the bottler acquisitions have given DPS control of nearly half of its overall volume and direct access to a substantial majority of the U.S. population.
DPS operates 21 manufacturing and bottling facilities in North America and more than 200 warehouses and distribution centers. Manufacturing facilities are located in:
