My guess is that Blue Circle served Coca Cola products exclusively. As part of a marketing deal, Coca Cola and Blue Circle had that regional ad clock maker in Kentucky produce custom neon clocks for the Blue Circle restaurant locations. Coca Cola likely paid for the clocks as a promotional reward to Blue Circle for their business. Plus, Coca Cola got the advertising visibility in the restaurants.
Again, that's my "guess". But, I was in the marketing business for years, and could easily see this happening. John
