Does anyone know where the old chero-cola bottling plant would be located in Shreveport La?
"Two of Jo and Ida's daughters started their own franchises after getting married. The first was started by Florence (Glazer) and Clarence Goldberg in Shreveport, Louisiana. The newlyweds were given a delivery truck and cases of empty bottles and bought a filler, crowner, and other equipment from Jo and Ida. They began bottling in 1930 at 962 Travis. Aunt Ida was more popular here than in North Texas and billboards using the "Aunt Ida Girl" was commissioned by artist Earl Moran. One brand started in Shreveport was Joys, named for Florence and Clarence's daughter, Joy Goldberg. In 1948, the Shreveport operation rolled out Pepsi Cola."Does anyone know where the old chero-cola bottling plant would be located in Shreveport La?
