Coca Cola Enterprises Headquarters to Stay in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- The good news for Atlanta is the headquarters for the new Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. is staying put.

The not-so-good news is that once it completes its $13 billion transaction with The Coca-Cola Co., CCE will go from 70,000 employees to 13,000 employees. And CCE's workforce in Atlanta will go from 3,500 employees to about 100.

The other 3,400 employees will join Coca-Cola. About 10 CCE employees will be transferred to CCE's European headquarters near London.

Expected to close in the fourth quarter, the transaction will mean CCE will go from being the world's largest Coca-Cola bottler to becoming the world's third-largest independent bottler of Coca-Cola products.
