Pepsi Bottling Ventures, the soft drinks bottler owned by Japan's Suntory, has completed its acquisition of Pepsi Cola Bottling Company of Conway-Myrtle Beach.

The South Carolina-based Pepsi-Cola franchise bottler is now wholly owned by North Carolina-based Pepsi Bottling Ventures. Financial details were not disclosed.

Pepsi Bottling Ventures (PBV) is the largest privately held Pepsi-Cola bottler in the US, operating 26 manufacturing, distribution, and sales facilities in North Carolina, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Vermont, and Idaho, and South Carolina.

Earlier this year PBV signed deals to buy two independent franchise bottlers in Idaho - Nagel Beverage Company and Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company.
