ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Soda and snacks
PepsiCo (Pepsi), based in Purchase, N.Y., is known for being the No. 2 soft-drink maker behind Coca-Cola, with its trademark soft-drink products including Pepsi, Mountain Dew and Slice. What isn't commonly known, however, is that much of Pepsi's revenue comes from its noncarbonated beverages. While Pepsi may have lost a few rounds in the cola battles to Coke, the company is a leader in several other categories: sport drinks and enhanced water (Gatorade and Propel), water in PET bottles (Aquafina), chilled juice (Tropicana), bottled coffees and teas (under the Starbucks and Lipton names), potato chips (Lay's, Ruffles), tortilla chips (Doritos), corn chips (Fritos), extruded snacks (Cheetos), hot cereal and grits (Quaker), pasta (Pasta Roni), rice (Rice-A-Roni), side dishes (Near East) and pancake syrup and mix (the venerable Aunt Jemima). Pepsi has hundreds of other brands which can be found in approximately 200 countries around the world. Similar to how its main rival Coca-Cola operates, PepsiCo makes beverage concentrates, sells them to independent bottlers and oversees product promotion.
