Find your Pepsi fix at the Bookie
WSU’s contract with Coca-Cola means that the eateries in the new CUB — even those privately owned — all primarily serve Coke products.
The exception is the Bookie, which carries Pepsi because its contract with Pepsi pre-dates WSU’s contract with Coke.
There are a few non-Coke items sold outside the Bookie.
“Non-Coke products are sold, but only if it’s something that the Coke company doesn’t provide,” said Brian Keithley, Dining Services general manager. “That can be something that Pepsi represents, but you will never see the Pepsi logo. An example would be SoBe.”
WSU’s contract with Coke expires in June 2010, said Gary L. Coyle, director of Dining Services. As that date nears, the Office of Business and Finance will begin reviewing beverage agreement options, he said.
