NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans hosted the Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) annual Truck Rodeo & Family Day for more than 350 employees and their families at Nissan Stadium on Halloween. The theme of "Trick or Treat" was transformed into "Truck or Treat".
Children received treats from decorated bags of the big, red Coca-Cola truck and enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon of activities including music, inflatable games, food, cotton candy, popcorn, giveaways and an opportunity to see the Coca-Cola Polar Bear. Titans mascot T-Rac entertained everyone with his usual antics, while Titans cheerleaders, Kate and Heidi were on hand to sign autographs and pose for pictures.

"This event is about spending time with family, friends and recognizing the most important asset of our company, our great employees," said Jed Thomas, market unit vice president – Tennessee at Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated. "As we celebrate our employees, it's important that we celebrate with great partners like the Titans."
Coca-Cola is committed to teamwork and strengthening our community. They invest in their drivers and safe vehicle operations, in addition to focusing on quality and customer service. The Truck Rodeo is designed for the truck drivers who have met criteria throughout the year and qualified to participate. Those drivers who won at the rodeo will move on to a corporate event, where they will have the opportunity to compete with other winners from across the company to win prizes.
"The event is an opportunity to continue our culture of being safe at work and at home," said Richard Youmans, senior director, field operations – Knoxville at Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated. "It allows our team the opportunity to be rewarded for their dedication to safety, as our number one asset is our team."
"We are so very proud to have Coca-Cola as a partner," said Titans Chief Revenue Officer, Stuart Spears. "They have been a great supporter of our organization from day 1. We are honored each year to help them host this event for their employees."
No one does it bigger or better than CCBCC. Whether it's a Titans football, college football, the NASCAR Coke 600, their purpose is to deliver value and tradition to their customers and partners.
This is one of many ways that Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated gives back to its employees and our community.
