Sebring old-fashioned bottle shop specializes in special soda

SEBRING, Fla. (WFLA) — A soda shop in Sebring specializes in soda and juices made with 100 percent cane sugar.

Antique bottle shop owner Jeff Kennedy is originally from Clearwater. He moved to Sarasota as a young boy, and eventually made his way to Sebring in his early 30s.

“My life with soda pop starts at an early age,” Kennedy said.

He said he’s collected different items all his life, but currently, glass soda bottles are his passion. Out of the 360 different kinds of soda and juices Kennedy supplied, all are made with 100 percent real cane sugar. Kennedy said this is how he believes soda should be made.

Kennedy believes soda made with 100 percent real cane sugar is the way of the future for soda.

“The industry is catching on because it needs to,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy said his soda and ice cream shop dreams won’t stop anytime soon because he is just getting started. He added he wants to establish more food choices for his customers.

“It’s always kind of centered on hotdogs if you can imagine there is such a thing.”
