The company initially imported codd-neck bottles from Germany but lost money when the manufacturer shut down due to the war. However, after the war, the German manufacturer delivered twice the number of bottles ordered. In the 1960s, a rival brand destroyed Mappillai Vinayagars bottles, leading the company to switch to plain glass bottles for flavored drinks. The opening of arrack shops in the 1970s brought success to the company, but the closure of these shops affected its business. Mappillai Vinayagar also faced competition from duplicate sodas using their original bottles. The companys other businesses suffered losses, leading to a focus on the soda business. The Jallikattu protests in 2017 revived interest in goli soda, leading to increased demand. Currently, Mappillai Vinayagar supplies flavored sodas to star hotels and is expanding its manufacturing units.
