SHAREHOLDERS! WE NEED YOUR HELP: I am looking for fellow shareholders to help create "blocks" to bring change on this deal during the annual shareholders meeting or before. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a BAD deal for the people of Dublin, TX. The bottling of the original Dr. Pepper formula was a major contribution to their economy. 14 people were let go from the plant. Many restaurants get up to 40% of their income from the tourism that comes to buy Dublin Dr. Pepper and plant tours! PLEASE HELP! Thanks for your consideration.
If you want Dr Pepper back then you need to give them a good reason to come back. Stating they should come back simply to save you is meaningless because by saving you they are denying jobs to someone else. Its a zero sum game. Assuming that you somehow have a right to a business that you do not own is equally unjustified. Dr Pepper paid your city very well for years but it was never your company. If you loved & needed them so much then why didnt you and the rest of the town make some sort of fund to buy a large stake in the company? If you guys had started back in the old days you would have easily owned a majority stake by now. Heck the entire town would be filthy rich if you guys had banded together as your videos claim you do. I am sorry to say but its your own fault for not securing your future. Now band together, learn from the past, and do something great. As cheesy as it sounds, life is what you make of it.
