One Soda Shop

John Nese has worked in a corner store since he was 5 years old. His father owned the store before he was born and it’s still in his family today. But the grocery store no longer sells things like bread, or milk. Nope, this store is all soda. But you won’t find Coke or Pepsi on these shelves. John stopped doing business with the big guys in 1995, right around the time he switched to all-soda. He only sells soda from specialty operations. Some of them are tiny. John tells Dick why he switched to only soda, banned Pepsi, and the things he’s learned along the way.
