Coca-Cola Canada is creating new jobs in Kelowna.

The soft drink giant announced on April 6 a $1 million investment into expanding the distribution facility just off of Hwy. 97 in the north end, adding 12 new jobs in the process.

The facility will now operate with 66 employees, operating two shifts a day six days per week.
