During the 1950s, Hal G. Randolph was the owner and manager of the Canada Dry Bottling Company at 506 Ramseur St. The company bottled Spur, Nu-Grape, Sun Crest, Gordon's Beverages, and Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

Budd-Piper is one of Durham's oldest companies; the company moved here from their Five Points location (I'm not sure in what year,) which eventually was demolished in 1960.
