Coca-Cola Enterprises is the world's largest marketer, distributor, and producer of bottled and canned liquid nonalcoholic refreshment. CCE sells approximately 80 percent of The Coca-Cola Company's North American volume, and is the sole licensed bottler for products of The Coca-Cola Company in Belgium, continental France, Great Britain, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Monaco.
The roots of Coca-Cola Enterprises date back to 1899, when to Chattanooga businessmen secured exclusive rights to bottle and sell Coca-Cola for most of the United States, and susequently began granting bottling franchise rights to other entrepreneurs. The modern, publicly-traded CCE, however, would not take shape until 1986, when The Coca-Cola Company merged some of its company-owned operations with two large ownership groups that were for sale.
Job opportunities can be found at the company's corporate and eastern U.S. regional headquarters at Wildwood Office Park in Cumberland/Galleria and their 88,000 square foot data center/office building in Perimeter Center, as well as at several of their production and distribution facilities in Atlanta, Austell, Decatur, Jasper, Lawrenceville, Marietta, and Villa Rica.
