Fall River soda company closing after 59 years

Posted: Updated:

FALL RIVER (AP) - A Fall River soda maker is closing after nearly six decades in business.

Frosty Beverages owner Eddie Abdow said he cried as he typed the New Year's Day announcement on Facebook that he was closing the business founded by his grandfather 59 years ago.

The 49-year-old Abdow tells The Herald News (http://bit.ly/UKzfhE ) that balancing two full-time jobs while also wrangling with expensive machinery repairs and rising production costs led to the decision. He is also a teacher at a city middle school.

Abdow says he expects to close the plant within a month, sell the machinery and then repair the building for rent or lease.

He says customers are welcome to stop by and pick up sodas with flavors including strawberry and pineapple, but he's going to keep some for himself.
