W.W. Clements, known to everyone as "Foots" has one huge claim to fame, and that was his love of the soft drink, Dr. Pepper. In the 1930's, he owned a cafe and met a customer who would drink nothing else but Dr. Pepper, and it intrigued "Foots". Soon he was driving a soda delivery truck, and his life long love for the beverage stuck. He worked his way up the ranks from delivery truck driver to C.E.O., and he is as responsible as anyone for the drinks success. He also founded the Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco Texas. He retired from the company in 1986, but always retained a love for the drink.
