Soft Drinks El Manantial represents a saga of challenges, effort and sacrifice. Ours is a story made of dreams in harmony with reality.
These dreams have led us to the goals we have sought since the beginning, regardless of how strenuous they may be. Our goals are what we are today: a proudly Mexican, Sinaloan and Rosarian firm.
Our story begins circa 1887 when El Rosario, Sinaloa was the most prosperous town in the northwest of Mexico boasting an economic boom that stemmed from the town's main activity.
In that day and age, there were two small soda pop bottling companies: La Eureka and La Azteca. The former that was located inside a drugstore called Sinaloense and was owned by Mr. Antonio Espinoza de los Monteros produced various soft drinks, mainly one, the specialty of the House: a fruit soda pop with a touch of vanilla that Mr. Espinoza called Tony Co. Tony, a diminutive for Antonio and Co. the English abbreviation for Company.
The Azteca also elaborated fruit soft drinks and was owned by Mr. Enrique Castañeda.
On October the 16th, 1911, in the rural community of Potrerillos, Angel Solorza Gonzalez, a boy that would totally turn around those two little soda pop factories in El Rosario was born. Don Angel, as he came to be known by everyone and who started in July 1925 as a small employee washing bottles in the Eureka made his dream of "doing something with his life" come true. Little by little he became savvy in the production of soft drinks and in business management as well. An innate businessman, he merges the two small bottling companies paving the way for the successful Firm that El Manantial is today. Thanks to Don Angel and his vision a score of great things were carried out for the company's sake, mainly taking the Tony Co, out of anonymity, giving it an identity of its own turning it into our leader brand.
