Beaudot sells ready- to-eat popcorn in 48 states, Alaska, Cuba and Israel. His popcorn is dispensed in stores, clubs and "any place where "eople walk in and out." Formerly a bus driver for Chicago Tran.sit Authority, he is one of the country's largest popcorn processors. "I don't have a hobby now," he said. "It's a business. I started with a little kettle in the kitchen at home. I was working only three hours a day and six days a week, so I had a lot of time on my hands." He first operated a part-time peanut-vending machine business. That was in 1941. He had increased his original five machines to 300, when he sold hi» business to go into the army. He was rejected. Quits Bus Driving Beaudot, 52, immediately started a new entern -'se by investing in popcorn vending machines. He popped corn at home and delivered it to ?5 Chicago movie theaters. He quit his bus-driving job in 1943. He began making his own warming and dispensing machines in 1948. Now he has 24,000 "counter warmers" in service. Beaudot is president of the National Popcorn Manufacturers Association. There are ?50 members in the group. He estimates that the popcorn industry soon will reach one-billion dollars worth of sales a year. Beaudot buys selected popcorn fron farmers. He travels through seven states and talks to farm groups to encourage popcorn plantings. He says the leading popcorn producing states are Indiana, Southern Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Northern Texas and Iowa. Beaudot reports he never has had a failure with popcorn grown along the Ohio vallev. He uses 2.5,000 100-pound bags of raw corn a year. Special Machine To maintaij a Si,eady flow of popcorn to popcorn munchers, Beaudot devised a ten-popper turntable machin , Poppers are fitted over a gas blaze. An operator covers the corn with salt and coconut oil and pours it into an empty popper. In two- and one-half minutes, it is emptied and refilled. The popcorn is sifted by a screen cylinder. The residue is sold to zoos for animal feed. The popcorr is packaged in 2%-peck and 2-bushel bags. Beaudot says it will stay fresh for three months. Beaudot's business now is a family affair. His son. Robert, 21, delivers popcorn. His wife, Helen, is secretary-treasurer. OPDYKE H. P. KELLCY. CarrMMn4*M CARPENTER WORK For all types of carpenter work, repairs. I will also draw your plans.
