As kids growing up in New Mexico, Butch and Don Olhausen worked for their dad setting up and re-covering pool tables. Their dad had a shop in every house they ever lived in. Little did they know they were learning a trade that would carry them through the rest of their lives.
In th summer of 1969, Butch moved to California. Donny decided to follow in 1972. That’s when the Olhausen boys started their own company, moving and re-covering pool tables. They also delivered new tables for a small manufacturing company in San Diego. They charged $12 to deliver and install a new table, using Butch’s classic ’59 El Camino and paying for the gas. What a deal! They could be done with a delivery by 10:00A.M. After that, they would go out and “pound the pavement” for any more work they could find.
