A Landmark Location
Cabarrus Creamery and Coca Cola Bottling Company
Coca-Cola Bottling Company
In the early 1970s, the Coca-Cola Bottling Company moved its operations to another site. Subsequently, the Burrage family purchased the building in 1974 and expanded its dairy production there. In the following years, the Cabarrus Creamery continued to operate, despite changing regulations in the dairy industry. In 2001, the business ceded to mounting pressures and shut down its operation.
The memories of these once-flourishing businesses in Concord are now part of The Old Creamery, a development which honors two famed brands, Cabarrus Ideal and Coca-Cola. Operating side-by-side for decades and serving as favorite gathering spot, these businesses at Church and Peachtree Streets are Concord's Original Coke Float.
