In January 1933, Lafayette Coca-Cola was located on the corner of Johnson and Jefferson Street (formerly known as Oak Street) where Coca-Cola products for the area were warehoused. The facility was leased for $20 a month. The product was transported from the Lake Charles and Jennings production plants. In 1936, we relocated to the corner of University and Cameron Street until moving to the current facility on Eraste Landry Road in the early 1970s.
