This guy might be my new hero. His name is John Nese and he owns Galco’s Soda Pop Stop in Los Angeles. He embodies the spirit of entrepreneurship. Obviously independent, customer centered, providing a valued product, his personality is as effervescent as the drinks he sells, he’s just a cool guy.

Why is the recycling requirement for plastic soda bottles actually environmentally unfriendly? Why does one only see Coke and Pepsi products on the shelves of supermarkets? Why is corn syrup used in American soda instead of cane sugar? John explains.

The video is a bit long but it’s worth it. I promise this guy will brighten your day. Plus you’ll learn some interesting stuff about soda. Who knew there was a soft drink made from rose petals?
