What would you do if a big corporation took over the company you built, then told you you had no more right to use your own name to sell the product you invented?
Welcome to Wally Amos’s world.
The founder of Famous Amos Cookies eventually lost the company. And then he lost the right to use his own name to sell cookies.
But the Florida native with the irrepressible sense of humor and enthusiasm turn the situation around. Eventually.
He wrote about it in a 1994 book that he called Man With No Name.
So here now, from 1994, Wally ‘Famous’ Amos.
Wally Amos is 85 now. He lives in Columbia, South Carolina, where he works on Aunt Della’s Cookies.
