Coke wants in on new $17M Tampa SportsPlex

In an unsolicited proposal, The Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (NASDAQ: COKE) said it wants its Coke products at the new Hillsborough County Tournament SportsPlex as well as Fairway Cafe and the three Tampa Sports Authority managed golf courses, which are Babe Zaharias, Rocky Point and Rogers Park, according to a TSA agenda item. The sport authority's new $17 million SportsPlex venue opened late last year on Columbus Drive between U.S. 301 and Falkenburg Road.
