CHICAGO—Navy Pier is proud to announce our new partnership with Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling (RCCB) as the official non-alcoholic beverage partner for the entire Pier. In celebration of this new venture, we are giving out free Coca-Cola ice cream floats at Polk Bros Park on Friday, Oct. 21 and Saturday, Oct. 22 from 11:00 am – 2:00 p.m.
“We are so grateful to enter a new era in partnership with Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling. RCCB is known for its support of nonprofit organizations and venues throughout the Midwest,” said Navy Pier President and CEO Marilynn Gardner. “They have a strong passion for the communities in which they operate, and we are thrilled to make RCCB the official partner for Navy Pier.”
On Oct. 21 – Oct. 22, while guests enjoy free Coca-Cola and vanilla ice cream floats and other giveaways, they can hop into the Coca-Cola Volkswagen Bus to capture a candid moment with their family and friends or stop by the Coca-Cola branded backdrop to get a printed photo or post on social media.
With this new partnership, all vending machines and restaurants across Navy Pier will serve Coca-Cola products including Coca-Cola®, Coca-Cola® Zero Sugar, Diet Coke®, Sprite®, DASANI®, smartwater®, POWERADE®, and Gold Peak® tea, starting on November 1.
“Navy Pier is a true icon of Chicago, and we are thrilled to partner with them to bring Coca-Cola brands to guests as they enjoy the exciting experience that the Pier offers,” said Pat Witte, Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling Midwest Chief Customer Officer. “We have strong ties to Chicago and look forward to serving the community together for many years to come.”
In addition to recycling call-to-action signage, beverage options available at the Pier will include DASANI® water in bottles made from 100% recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottles (excluding caps and labels).
