Seems that Forest City Ratner has reneged on plans to sell Jones Soda at the Barclays Arena, opting instead for an outfit you may have heard of called Coca Cola. Here’s Grub Street’s take on the news (broken by The Post):
So what’s with the switcheroo? “Our goal is making this arena all about Brooklyn — even the food and drink — and one thing that became clear to me is Brooklyn’s a Coke town,” says Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. Which is strange, because we sort of thought Brooklyn was a Brooklyn Soda Works town these days, or maybe a Brooklyn Farmacy kind of place. But guess not. More Sprite for everyone!
