Coke and Pepsi nowadays, over the years both company companies have seen worldwide expansion of their markets, which include varying lines of beverages, apparel and paraphernalia with their respective logos. For many years, Coca-cola and Pepsi have enjoyed the position as the two most enjoyed soft drinks in the world, as they have maintained their popularity over the past few decades.

Pepsi was originally named “Brad’s Drink”, and was created as coke’s primary competitor. Based on the researcher observation Coca-cola gets the number one spot in the industry of beverages while Pepsi was the second. Their spot for number one and two was consistent over the years not only on the other country but also in our country Philippines.
