Dr Pepper Snapple Group is one of the largest beverage companies in the Americas. It manufactures, markets and distributes more than 50 brands of carbonated soft drinks, juices, ready to drink teas, mixers and other premium beverages across the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
The company's diverse portfolio includes Dr Pepper, Snapple, 7UP, Mott's, A&W, Sunkist Soda, Canada Dry, Crush, Hawaiian Punch, Schweppes, Peñafiel, Squirt, Clamato, Mr & Mrs T Mixers, Rose's, Yoo-hoo and other consumer favorites.
The company says it has 6 of the top 10 non-cola soft drinks, and 13 of its 14 leading brands are No. 1 or No. 2 in their flavor categories.
DPS serves its customers and consumers via a route to market consisting of its wholly owned bottling network as well as franchised bottlers, distributors and brokers.
DPS had 21 manufacturing facilities and over 115 principal distribution centers and warehouse facilities across North America.
In the U.S., DPS markets, bottles and distributes a broad range of soft drinks, non-carbonated beverages and mixers, from iconic national brands to regional favorites. In addition, the company distributes a number of licensed brands in various territories, such as Fiji Water, Sunny Delight and Big Red.
Nearly half of DPS’ annual volume is distributed through its company-owned bottling and distribution network. The remainder is driven through third-party/licensed bottlers and distributors, including those in both the Coca-Cola and Pepsi bottling systems, as well as independent bottlers, brokers and distributors.
In Mexico and the Caribbean, the company operates primarily in the carbonated mineral water, flavored soft drinks, bottled water and vegetable juice categories. In Mexico, the company does business as Grupo Peñafiel, key brands include Peñafiel, Squirt, Clamato and Aguafie. The company manufactures and sells brands through both its own bottling operations and third-party bottlers.
In the Caribbean, it operates as Mott’s Snapple International and distributes products exclusively through third-party bottlers and distributors. Leading brands for Caribbean markets include Mott’s, Snapple, Mistic, Hawaiian Punch, Yoo-hoo, Old Colony and Nantucket Nectars.
Canada Dry Mott’s is the Canadian subsidiary of Dr Pepper Snapple Group. Based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada Dry Mott’s serves markets coast to coast primarily through third-party bottlers and distributors (for soft drinks) and via warehouse delivery (for juices, mixers and other products). The company’s Canadian portfolio includes Mott’s apple juice, Mott's Clamato, Canada Dry, Dr Pepper, Crush, Mott’s Fruitsations, Schweppes, Orangina, Mott’s Garden Cocktail, and Mr & Mrs T mixers, among other brands.
In 2014, the company reported revenues of $6.12 billion, a 2% increase, and net income of $703 million. The company saw sales volume increase 1% in 2014 for both carbonated and non-carbonated drinks. Over 80% of sales come from the U.S.
Dr Pepper Snapple Group was established in 2008 following the spinoff of Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages (CSAB) from Cadbury Schweppes plc. CSAB had formed in 2003 by bringing together Cadbury Schweppes' four North American beverages businesses, Dr Pepper/Seven Up Inc., Snapple Beverage Group, Mott's LLP, and Bebidas Mexico, unifying more than 50 leading brands under a common vision, business strategy and management structure and solidifying the company's position as the third-largest refreshment beverage business in North America.
The company established its own bottling and distribution network in 2006, when it acquired full ownership of Dr Pepper/Seven Up Bottling Group, the largest independent bottler in the United States. Subsequently, the company acquired several other major independent bottling businesses, including All-American Bottling Co., Seven Up Bottling Co. of San Francisco, and Southeast-Atlantic Beverage Corp. Adding to its finished goods (juices, teas, mixers) manufacturing footprint, the bottler acquisitions have given DPS control of nearly half of its overall volume and direct access to a substantial majority of the U.S. population.
