Diet Coke, anyone?


Layoffs PepsiCo started earlier this month are about to hit people working at company HQ in Purchase and throughout  Westchester County.


Lohud is reporting that 145 local employees of Pepsico, which is based in Purchase, will be among the 8,700 pepsi workers worldwide who will lose their jobs. Those people represent about 5% of the company’s 3,000 Westchester employees.


The layoffs will hit 80 workers at corporate headquarters, 50 at a bottling center in Somers and 15 at a research facility in Valhalla. The cutbacks come from slow sales.


But the sculpture garden is still nice.
