    (October 22, 1897-June 21, 1985)
    Birth name is Hector Boiardi
    Started Chef Boyardee
    An Italian involved in pasta products? Talk about stereotypes.
    He left from New York for Cleveland.
    Most Italians find his canned pastas to be repulsive.
    The slogan is a bit pompous 'Thank goodness for Chef Boyardee!'
    He left Italy for the U.S. at 17 (1914).
    His first job in the U.S. was as a chef at the Plaza Hotel in New York.
    As a chef in Cleveland, many of the patrons so enjoyed his pastas they would buy extra for home use.
    He bottled his pasta sauces and sold them at the restaurant (1929).
    His sauces grew in such popularity that orders quickly came in from neighboring stores until it became nationwide.
    He advised the company until he died.
