Another well known business also got its start in Morton.
Lonnie and Barbara Allsup grew up in Morton. After starting and the selling a chain of "drive-thru" grocery stores, they created the Allsup's brand in Clovis, New Mexico.
They became one of the first stores to offer self-serve gasoline and one of the first to offer self-serve fountain drinks.
Today, Allsup's is still owned and operated by its founders, with more than 300 stores in 160 towns and cities.
