M. L. Kiser began bottling soft drinks under Spencer Carbonating Co. in 1907, followed by Orange Crush Bottling, Pepsi-Cola, and finally Boone Rock Bottling Co. 1929-1954, which gave us Boone Cola.

Bo,

Thank you for giving us more information on the history of Boone Cola. I had made a quick search online and found that there are still a few of these old signs out there but not much information on the company itself. If you have additional history on Boone Cola or any of the other topics covered in the blog please share it in a post.

Thanks again,

Trevor

Stephanie,

I am not aware of any website associated with the company or its history. The previous comment by Bo Russell contains the most information I have seen about the company.
