Not much has been written about the iconic PEPSI building that sits just off the I-295 parkway in Cheverly, Maryland. Constructed in 1962, the privately owned bottling plant serves as one of the largest suppliers of PEPSI products to the greater Washington, DC area. Passed by millions of motorists each day, the best view of the vintage neon signage can be seen from the I-295 Balitmore-Washington Parkway, traveling North from the city, just after sunset.
