About Automated Food Systems, Inc. history

Founded in 1976 by Glenn Walser, Automated Food Systems answered the need of a food processor who was manually producing corndogs--a batter wrapped sausage on a stick.

GLENN WALSER (Owner, Automated Food Systems): This is the way a good corn dog starts.
GLENN: There is your first real good one. GLENN: Well, we're looking at a corn dog fryer. And this is the beginning of the process. HATTIE: (Voiceover) Automated Food Systems has fully mechanized corn dog production, and since its first machine was built, the corn dog market has grown 25 percent annually. GLENN: It picks up 26 sticks and 26 sausages and indexes them across in approximately two seconds. And then the sticker apparatus pushes that stick through the stick holder bar, into the sausage that's clamped on the other side. HATTIE: (Voiceover) When he lost his job, he had to make a living for his family. Glenn Walser invented the first automated corn dog machine in 1976. Today, the company he and his wife Wanda own, Automated Food Systems, builds the machines that produce 95 percent of the some 2.5 billion corn dogs consumed in the US. GLENN: A friend of mine that I had done business with before found out that I'd been fired and asked me what I was going to do. And I said, `I don't know.' He says, `Have you ever thought about starting your own business?' And I said, `Well, yes, but I don't have any money.' He says, `Well, that's all right. You have engineering expertise, and I'm willing to trust you and back you.' HATTIE: Wow. So you had a friend that put the capital up at the beginning. GLENN: Just a small amount. Just enough to get started. My previous employment was with the Hacienda Mexican Foods in Lubbock making taco shell fryers, which was a revolutionary machine in the early '70s. A fellow in the corn dog business from Abernathy, Texas, had visited the plant and saw what we'd done with the taco shell machine and he said, `We really need something like that in the corn dog business.' GLENN: If you just think of 26 every five seconds. GLENN: Yes. We require a sizable deposit, something like in the order of 40 percent to 45 percent, because these are very specialized machines. HATTIE: Do you think some of us as small business owners underprice or undervalue ourselves? We underprice or don't charge enough because we don't realize how much it really does cost to run a business? GLENN: Well, I have a philosophy about my business. `If you do not know your cost, you're going broke.' So it's inherently--that's one of the first things I do.
