Middle Tennessee Dr Pepper Distributing Company



Middle Tennessee Dr Pepper Bottling Company was established in McMinnville, TN in 1938. In 1965 the Milner family purchased the company and has operated it ever since. Doug Milner is currently the President and General Manager. He has worked at the plant in various jobs since the family acquired it in the early sixties.

The plant has primarily bottled and distributed Dr Pepper and Sun Drop products since its inception until 1985 when it discontinued bottling in order to focus on the sales and distribution of the many soft drink products in what is now the Dr Pepper Snapple Group. Middle TN Dr Pepper services the eight counties surrounding the Warren County McMinnville area which includes Grundy, White, Sequatchie, Marion, Dekalb, Bledsoe, Cannon and Van Buren counties.

The distribution business has its challenges today with multiple brands, flavors, container types and sizes and many in both caffeinated and decaffeinated as well as diet. Middle Tennessee Dr Pepper focuses primarily on those products that are most popular with the residents and travelers in the nine county area.
