Bill Naugle

Author/Entrepreneur/Sales Professional
Austin, TX
Starting work at an early age and from the start exposed to an icon of the fast food industry in Southern California, Bill Naugle began his life washing dishes, sweeping floors, and picking up trash in parking lots. Having worked his way through various levels of management, he migrated from restaurant, to finance, to outside sales of construction products, including becoming an ADA specialist, to finally a successful seller of new homes in the Austin, Texas area. Bill Naugle has taken the time to sit down, share some knowledge, and compile this work from documentation imparted to him by his grandfather: Dick Naugle.
The N Effect Book
Meet the man who put the “fast” in fast food. Despite never finishing fourth grade, Dick Naugle—or Naugle for short—was a pioneer of the fast food industry. The entrepreneur behind Del Taco and Naugles having created the twin-kitchen concept, served the first 32-ounce wide-mouth soft drink, and built the first fast drive-through with an exterior speaker system that served an impressive three to four cars per minute. In addition to transforming the development of American-style Mexican food, Naugle left a lasting effect—the “N” effect—on both the industry and the lives of those who worked with him, especially his grandson, who learned about life and business firsthand from the man who called him “Sonny.”
Equal parts biography, business guide, and inspirational nonfiction, The N Effect is the chronicle of how one man had the keys to building an empire, and then lost it. But most importantly, it is the deeply personal story of one man’s legacy and the bond between a grandfather and his grandson.
Dishing up business acumen and personal stores sprinkled throughout with gems of Naugle wisdom, The N Effect will inspire businessmen, restauranteurs, and champions of the human spirit.
