CONGRATULATIONS TO DR. PEPPER IN BROWNWOOD FOR BEING NAMED JUNE LARGE BUSINESS OF THE MONTH!
A pharmacist named Charles Alderton created Dr Pepper in 1885. Alderton worked at a drugstore in Waco, Texas, owned by Wade Morrison. Legend has it that Morrison named it “Dr. Pepper” after the father of a young girl he was once in love with.
Dr Pepper was created in Waco, Texas, in 1885 and, as such, is the oldest major soft drink brand in America.
