UF Administrative Memo: Pepsi Contract Reminder

UF ADMINISTRATIVE MEMO

FROM: Robert W. Miller, Associate Vice President,  UF Business Affairs

SUBJECT:

Pepsi Contract Reminder Each semester, we take the opportunity to remind campus

that Pepsi has the exclusive pouring rights contract for UF. This means that only Pepsi

products (including Aquafina bottled water and Gatorade) may be served on campus, or

at the University Athletic Association, UF Foundation,  UF Health and Shands Hospital

properties.  This exclusivity extends to events as wide ranging as a faculty meeting, dean’s

luncheon, staff retreat, catered function or special event.

 

I would like to remind you that UF Purchasing has worked closely with Pepsi and Mister

Paper to provide a new and convenient ordering process for ordering smaller quantities of

Pepsi products.  For orders of less than 10 cases, Pepsi products can be ordered from

Mister Paper in myUF Market.  Follow this link to order Pepsi products from Mister Paper:

For Pepsi product orders of 10 or more cases, please contact the local Pepsi Warehouse

between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (352) 376-8276 (please have your account number

available).

 

Also please remember, there is never a fee for Mister Paper or Pepsi to deliver your order

to your office or event. Keep in mind you may observe Pepsi pricing specials in local area stores that are

advertised at a lower cost in order to attract customers.  Although these sales may be

enticing, the University is obligated to purchase beverages directly from either Mister

Paper or the Pepsi Warehouse.

 

Pepsi generously contributes significant financial support to the University in the form of

sponsorships, promotions and scholarship dollars, so your support of our Pepsi

partnership is greatly appreciated. As always, personal use is exempted from the contract.
