Meet the man who put the “fast” in fast food. Despite never finishing sixth 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-thru 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.

What a triumph and great testimonial !!!

“A businessman reflects on the impact that his entrepreneurial grandfather had on his life.”

Kirkus Reviews
“A thoughtful account of the advantages and disadvantages of imitating one’s idols.”
Kirkus Reviews
“In the end, though, this is both a moving homage to a personal hero and a bracing reminder of the dangers of uncritical emulation. The author is refreshingly candid not only about his grandparent’s personal failings, some of which led to disastrous business mistakes, but also about his own.”
Kirkus Reviews


Starting work at an early age alongside his grandfather, 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.

After working his way through various levels of management, he migrated from restaurant, to finance, and later to outside sales of construction products, including becoming an ADA specialist, to finally establish himself as 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.
