    Another cola war battle was fought in Ocean City, and Coke has come out on top.

    Ocean City, Maryland announced Wednesday a 5-year agreement, naming Coke as the city's exclusive beverage franchise holder.

    What does that mean?  At Ocean City-owned properties and events, you want find Pepsi, Royal Crown, or Mr. Pibb being served.  Just Coca-Cola.

    The Ocean City government estimates the deal is worth $286,172 annually.

    “The Town is looking forward to working with Coca-Cola on a coordinated marketing program to promote Ocean City as a prime mid-Atlantic destination and Coca-Cola as our official beverage partner,” said Mayor Rick Meehan.

    Coca Cola will succeed Pepsi, the former exclusive beverage of Ocean City.
