J.R. Simplot net worth, biography & wiki:

J.R. Simplot Net Worth: J.R. Simplot founded the agricultural supply business, the J.R. Simplot Company, which focused on potato production. Produced John Richard Simplot (January 4, 1909 — May 25, 2008) in Dubuque, Iowa, Simplot was the guy to come up with the initial frozen French fry. His life was an American dream come true, as he turned from a 14-year old dropout with $80 dollars in his pockets right into a tycoon with a net worth of over three billion dollars during the time of his passing. Despite the fact that he grew up in a log cabin, he ended up making bundles from potato farming and assembling the biggest potato dehydrating plant on the planet. During World War II, Simplot provided American soldiers with dehydrated vegetables, and then went to help the growth of McDonald’s empire as their primary provider of French fries. Over time, he’d further enlarged his growing company as he contained cows farming, fertilizer, oil, cattle feed, seed and ski resorts to the potato farming. Exactly what the twenty-year old Simplot put in place as a small business eponymously called J. R. Simplot in 1929, turned into the potato dehydrating plant globally. The important growth of the company occurred during the Second World War when Simplot provided American soldiers with dehydrated vegetables. JR Simplot perished as a self made billionaire in the age of 99, leaving behind an extraordinary life story that undeniably establishes the presence of the American Dream.
