World's Largest Catsup Bottle For Sale
Our thanks to Mike Gassmann, "Big Tomato," at World's Largest Catsup Bottle, Inc., for providing the following press release about a certain big condiment container's future.
For those of you in the St. Louis area, and for those of you who are members of our Facebook page, this news will be of little surprise: yes, the Catsup Bottle is for sale.
First let me explain, it’s a popular misconception that the City of Collinsville and/or the non-profit World’s Largest Catsup Bottle Inc. actually own the property. This is not true. Since the mid-1990s the Catsup Bottle has been privately owned by Bethel-Eckert Enterprises, a trucking company headquartered in Collinsville. They no longer have need for the property and have decided to put it on the market.
Our relationship with Bethel-Eckert has been nothing less than wonderful over the years. We could not have asked for anything better.
