It is July 16th which means it is American businessman, Orville Redenbacher’s birthday! Hooray!

I thoroughly researched Redenbacher (I went on Wikipedia) and he is a pretty cool guy! Did you know he was in the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity and also ran for his college track team? I made a list of more facts about him below!

1. Growing up, Redenbacher sold popcorn out of the back of his car.

2. He graduated from Perdue University with a degree in agronomy.

3. His occupation on Wikipedia is listed as “entrepreneur” which is the coolest possible title.
