Quincy, Florida, became the richest town per capita in the United States in the midst of the Great Depression. How? With the help of Bainbridge Coca-Cola Bottling Company, which serviced the town and still does so today.
A banker named Pat Munroe began to notice that people in the town were using their very last nickels to buy a single bottle of refreshing Coca-Cola. During the economic depression, The Coca-Cola Company stock was trading for very little money, making shares extremely cheap to purchase.
Not only did Munroe himself invest in The Coca-Cola Company, he also convinced many of his neighbors to do the same. This brought wealth to the town, making Quincy the wealthiest town per capita in the United States.
Thanks to Bainbridge Coca-Cola Bottling Company and the efforts of Pat Munroe, over 60 of the town’s inhabitants were known as “Coca-Cola Millionaires” who still have family living in Quincy, Florida, today.
