The Net Income of Pepsi Cola Factory 

The manager of the Pepsi Cola factory, Habibollah Sabet, continues his rivalry with the managers of the Coca-Cola factory. In fact, this struggle, besides the economic competition, is a kind of conflict between Baha’i and Armenian. The current Pepsi Cola plant in Tehran will be relocated to Shiraz by next month, and it will be replaced by another plant that can produce twenty thousand bottles per hour.

The current factory produces 9,000 bottles per hour. In winter, the factory has been operating ten hours a day, and during the summer it operates at all times. So far, the net income of the Pepsi Cola factory has been 14 million tumans, whereas only one-and-a-half years have passed since its establishment. Most of the employees of Pepsi Cola factory are from Sangsar in Semnan.
