History Of Cabela's
The Cabela's headquarters is located in Sidney, Nebraska. Richard Cabela spent $45 on fishing supplies at a Chicago furniture expo in 1961. He advertised those supplies for sale in a local paper and also in several nationwide publications. When people made a purchase, he included a small catalog of other items for sale. As Mr. Cabela continued making more sales, his business grew exponentially. He, his wife and his brother set up a business in Sidney in 1963. Today, Cabela's has grown into a publicly traded corporation earning more than $3 billion in sales each year. Although the owner and founder died in 2014, the history of Cabela's is still in the making. The company plans to continue and honor the founder's hard work.
