“The two most unique traits of this company are: innovation/creative at its ‘mast’ and resiliency in its ‘keel’! The perfect storm that occurred in our first quarter, composed of consumer rebellion, big cola’s erratic pricing and weather, created circumstances that nearly exhausted team National’s resilience. This company thrives when challenged and this second quarter reflects those efforts,” said Nick A. Caporella, chairman and chief executive officer, in a prepared statement.
