Local Impact

We strive to give back to the communities we are fortunate enough to call our home.

Our Roots

Giving back is part of our roots. The Gross and Jarson families have always given back to the communities they serve. The Jarson (Kaplan) family was especially passionate about Habitat for Humanity; the house pictured, “Mickey’s House” was constructed in the early 1980’s. Today, we are proud to continue our tradition of giving


G&J Pepsi lends support to hundreds of causes in our franchise area through beverage donations, monetary contributions, in-kind services, and more. We have established criteria to ensure equitable donation distribution throughout the communities we serve. The four primary causes we support are:

Veterans, Military Families & First Responders

We help support those who are the first to serve and protect the community.

Sustainability & Recycling Initiatives

Sustainability efforts are an integral part of our business. We support causes that help expand and develop sustainable practices and create positive change in our communities.  

Supporting Our Communities

Our commitment to the local community goes beyond business. We partner with local events and organizations to make the community better together.
