Poe signing.(1) The only clue to their location is a classified ad placed in the Kingsport Times News on the same day for an experienced route salesman, which gives their location as Orebank.(2) The company doesnít seem to have lasted too long and during this period Pop Kola didnít have any town names on the bottles aside from the parent companyís address in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
