Charles Oaks, owner and manager of the Coca Cola bottling plant, had recently installed $10,000 (approx. $180,000 in today's amount) of new machinery. The plant was producing 125 cases a day with the capacity of producing 700 cases a day. Mr. Oaks had come to Sapulpa in 1911 but sold in 1917. He repurchased the plant again in 1927. The plant was located at 11 West Bryan. (Sapulpa Herald, January 3, 1928)
