RIVERSIDE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Now available electronically on top retail bookseller Barnes & Nobles' online bookstore, this compelling business biography, The 'N' Effect tells the scintillating story of fast food pioneer Richard "Dick" Naugle. Naugle, who created the first "FAST" food Del Taco drive-thru, took what he learned and eventually opened up a chain of American-style Mexican food restaurants called "Naugles" in Southern California.
The 'N' Effect gives readers a behind-the-scenes look into how this brilliant entrepreneur behind Del Taco and Naugles restaurants, with just a 4th grade education, had a significant impact in the 1950s-1980s on shaping the way early fast food businesses operated. Naugle, who often collaborated with fast food giants like the McDonald's brothers, carved out his own path by creating efficiency in the restaurant industry such as the twin-kitchen concept. This restaurateur, who worked to create cutting-edge technology, designed and built the first fast food drive-thru system that was able to serve an impressive three to four cars per minute. The 'N' Effect is a poignant and insightful story shared through the eyes of Naugle's grandson, Bill Naugle, and is filled with contrarian business beliefs along with how personal life can effect business decisions. Author Bill Naugle shares intimate details about long-lost Naugle family secrets, including how his grandfather not only taught him valuable life and business lessons, but was also the most influential person in his life.
The author doesn't hold back any punches as he opens up about not only the successes of his late grandfather but also his failures. While Naugle was a successful entrepreneur, he also suffered a turbulent life with many defeats and ups and downs in both his personal life as well as his business career. With personal stories interjected, The 'N' Effect will inspire, guide and gives no-nonsense advice to anyone dreaming of owning their own business one day.
The 'N' Effect is available as a NOOK book/e-book on Barnes & Nobles for $13.95.///
