Columbus grocer Claud A. Hatcher emerged in 1905 as a competitor to Coca-Cola. He began with Royal Crown Ginger Ale, changed the company focus and name to Chero-Cola in 1910, to Nehi in 1925 and when Rufus Kamm reformulated the ingredients in 1934, it became Royal Crown, or RC, Cola, as it is still known today.
