Roy Rogers was partnered in the fast-food chain that bears his name.
He founded the Roy Rogers-Dale Evans Museum in Victorville, CA
On working at Republic Pictures, Rogers told NEW YORK POST on March 13, 1991: "Well, you never made any money there, but you were working. In the 30s, that was important. But I was just thrilled to death to come to work every morning, because I was just a young guy, just getting started in the entertainment world."
"The most touching things happen at the museum. Adults, who were the kids that grew up with my pictures, come in and throw their arms around me like I'm a long-lost relative. There's tears running down this old boy's cheeks . . . you can't believe it. But for a few seconds he's six years old again." --Roy Rogers in NEW YORK POST, March 13, 1991
