Kik Distributing Co
Company Names, addresses, dates:
Kik Distributing Co, Washington DC
I can't find the KIK distributing Co in any Washington DC city directories for phone books. Nor could I find any advertisements for KIK by searching the historic Washington Post newspaper web site.
There is a "47" embossed below the lip of the crown-top bottle below that might be a date code for 1947, but if I had to guess I'd say the bottle was from the 1930s.
I did a google search and found that there was a Kik Cola company from 1926 to 1994 in Canada, and another Kik Cola company from 2010 to the present in Sri Lanka. So I guess the Canadian KIK company had a Washington DC distributor for a short time.
