Lime Rock Springs Co. is the corporate name and the company was founded in 1917 in Dubuque, Iowa by John C. Gantz. The name was derived from the natural springs on which the bottling facility was originally constructed. The Company bottled a full line of flavored soft drinks under its own label until 1936, when it began bottling and distributing Pepsi-Cola brands.  The Company now procures all of its products from Wis-Pak, Inc. which is a multi-plant production cooperative servicing the Company and over 30 other independent Pepsi-Cola Bottlers within the Midwest.
