Question re: regional cola preferances.

Spencer | Jan 17, 2008 01:42 PM

Is U.S. cola preferance a regional thing? And, if so, is there a region that contains people who predominately choose Pepsi?
I've lived in East Texas and Southeast Texas all my adult life. I can't remember the last time I saw someone purchase a Pepsi. (I'm one of those weird people who actively notices random social things, and this is one of hundreds of events that I have paid attention to.)
Now we have several restaurants in my area that carry Pepsi products only- not sure why, but I'm guessing it is a marketing thing of some sort. Countless times I've heard people order Coke. The waitress will then say, "Is Pepsi okay?" I have never heard a customer respond in the affirmative. Most times the order is changed to Tea or Dr. Pepper.
I know there must be people that drink it, but they are not in my neck of the woods.
So help me out here- is there an area where people predominately drink Pepsi?
Thanks,
Spencer
