In 1946 shortly after returning from 3 years in the U S Army during World War II, Stan Chilton established Chilton Vending and Billiards. The business grew rapidly and became known for excellent service, honesty, and always using the latest equipment. In 1998 the vending and amusement division of the company was sold to a national publicly traded company. The retail billiards division continued to operate. The store has received Brunswicks Top 10 Dealer award three times in recent years and numerous other awards for customer satisfaction.
January of 2010, 84 year old Stan Chilton sold his namesake business to Chris Simons, a former employee and business entrepreneur. Chris owned his own lawn care business and began working for Chilton Billiards doing deliveries and installations while he was in college. Simons eventually spun off his own business, 8 Ball Billiards Service, doing recovers and other maintenance work on pool tablesmany of which were referred to him by Chilton Billiards. A true entrepreneur, Simons began buying residential properties when he was 20 years old. Today, he has built a very successful business buying residential rental properties.
Chilton Billiards will continue to display the largest number of pool tables (45 +) and barstools (300) in South Central Kansas. They will provide the same quality of game room products and service that have made them the #1 Billiard and Game room store in the area. Simons plans to continue the tradition of high standards of excellent service, honesty, and products that Stan Chilton established in 1946.
