Royal Crown Cola (RC Cola) is a soft beverage similar to Pepsi and Coca-Cola. It was developed by a pharmacist named Claude Hatcher in the basement of his father’s grocery store, due to a disagreement with a local soda bottler. Hatcher’s earliest experiments yielded a ginger ale, which became quite popular locally and led him to test other recipes. Over the years, Royal Crown Cola has enjoyed success as an alternative to other soft drinks.
