Chero-Cola was a product of Union Bottling Works, a company started in 1905 in Columbus, Ga., by Claud A. Hatcher, a pharmacist. Chero-Cola was the first product in the Royal Crown line. The company became known as Chero-Cola shortly after it started, and in 1925 it became the Nehi Corporation. In 1934, Chero-Cola was reformulated and re-released as Royal Crown Cola.
