Olhausen Billiards


For President Donny Olhausen, Olhausen Billiards is not only a business, but also the extension of his family’s legacy in the billiards industry. Based in Portland, Tenn., the company manufactures pool tables and shuffleboards that are used around the world. Olhausen and his brother, Butch Olhausen, founded Olhausen Billiards in 1972 in San Diego. Prior to founding their company, the two brothers worked for their father’s pool table repair service in Las Cruces, N.M., moving pool tables and replacing worn cloth on tables in pool halls, homes and bars throughout the Southwest. “[Our father] learned to service pool tables in his dad’s pool hall in Iowa,” Donny Olhausen says. “We spent around 10 years working for my dad’s company.”
