Coca-Cola Plant Fizzing Out
Coca-Cola is fizzing out one of it's plants in north central Florida. The bottled water plant in High Springs is closing, leaving most of it's employees unrefreshed and out of work. 71 workers were told early this week that the plant would in fact be closing, after a potential buyer fell through. The plant has been downsizing for the last two years to try and stay afloat, but now Gilchrist County is officially losing it's biggest taxpayer.
Coca-Cola spokesperson Charlie Sutlive said in a statement to TV 20 that the prospective buyer backed out and they are giving severance packages to the remaining employees. The plant will close at the end of this month.
