Meet Ron Popeil
Ron Popeil founded Ronco in 1964, and commercials for the company's products quickly made Ronco a household name. The names "Ronco" and "Popeil" and the suffix "-O-Matic" (used in many early product names) became icons of American pop culture, and were often referred to by comedians introducing fictional gadgets. Popeil became known as the "father of the infomercial" and helped to establish the phrase "Set it and forget it!"
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 fifty years, his products gadgets have pulled in more than $2 billion in sales. Today Popeil is still going strong, even after selling Ronco in 2004. Ron resides in California where he continues to invent and enjoys spending time with his family!
