Invented in Marion & first marketed in Knoxville & Johnson City
The lemonade soda was also a flavor created by Bill Jones at what use to be the TIP Corporation in Marion, Virginia.
Marion prides itself on being the birthplace of Mountain Dew. So, we searched the town records and did in fact find that all of the rights to Mountain Dew were sold by Bill Jones to the Pepsi Company.
Marion spokesman Ken Heath said he would gladly credit Knoxville and Johnson City and the people in those cities for their role in Mountain Dew's history as long as they admitted the check went to Bill Jones in Marion, Virginia and that's where the soft drink we drink today came from.
Chuck Gordon confirmed that all rights and franchises to Mountain Dew were sold to Bill Jones in the late 1950's.
