The A.D. Huesing Corporation is an independently-owned Pepsi-Cola franchise bottling company. Unlike bottling companies owned and managed by the Pepsi-Cola Company, independently-owned franchise bottlers are not owned by the Pepsi-Cola Company. Rather, these independent bottlers maintain the exclusive rights to produce and distribute Pepsi-Cola and allied brands in their franchise territories, and no other company can legally sell Pepsi or any of its other brands in these territories.
A.D. Huesing (also known as Pepsi of Rock Island) has been independently owned since its beginning, and began its partnership with the Pepsi-Cola Company in 1935. We continue this relationship today, maintaining our franchise and company independent of outside ownership or management.
