Ronco

Ronco was founded by Ron Popeil in 1964, and commercials for the company's products soon became pervasive and memorable, in part thanks to Popeil's personal sales pitches. The names "Ronco" and "Popeil" and the suffix "-O-Matic" (used in many early product names) became icons of American popular culture and were often referred to by comedians introducing fictional gadgets.Popeil became known as the "father of the infomercial" and coined the phrase "Just set it and forget it."

Ron is a native of Chicago and has become a household name and legend in the Windy City. 40 years and 2 billion dollars later Ron has walked down Chicago's Maxwell Street reminiscing over where it all began. After a very troubled youth, being shuffled from foster home to foster home Ron remembers a turning point in his life. "Maxwell Street was a Chicago tourist attraction as well as a place to sell all sorts of goods. The first time I went there, the proverbial light bulb went on in my head. I saw all these people selling products, making sales, pocketing money, and my mind went racing. I can do what they're doing, I thought, but I think I can do it better than they can" said Popeil.

And "did it" he has, the self-made millionaire is the consummate American entrepreneurial success story. Ron "Ronco" Popeil is no doubt one of America's most unique inventors. Over the past 40 years, his products have pulled in more than $2 billion in sales. Today Popeil is still going strong after selling Ronco in 2004. The iconic Ronco brand and its innovative products continue under the ownership of Austin-based Ronco Holdings, Inc. Ron resides in California where he continues to invent and enjoys spending time with his family!
