Alderton worked at a place called Morrison's Drug Store and carbonated drinks were served at the soda fountain. Alderton invented his own recipes for soft drinks and found one of his drinks was becoming very popular. His customers originally asked for the drink by asking Alderton to shoot them a "Waco". The owner of the drug store, Morrison, is credited with naming the drink "Dr Pepper" after a friend of his, Dr. Charles Pepper. 1950s the period was removed from the "Dr Pepper" name. As demand grew Alderton and Morrison had trouble manufacturing enough "Dr Pepper" for their customers. In 1891, Morrison and Lazenby formed the Artesian Mfg. & Bottling Company, which later became the Dr Pepper Company. The Dr Pepper Company is the oldest major manufacturer of soft drink concentrates and syrups in the United States.
