Llewellyn was involved in a wide variety of business ventures, almost all of which were extremely profitable. He excelled at leveraged buy-outs, and two years after accomplishing a buy-out of the Philadelphia Coca-Cola Bottling Company, he had increased business by 300 percent. Through his efforts, he built the operation into the fourth largest black owned business in the United States.
