Rock-Ola was established in 1927 in Chicago by David C. Rockola, who worked in a shop that repaired coin-operated devices since he was a young boy. The company initially manufactured coin-operated scales.

Rock-Ola stared to manufacture pinball machines in the 1930s. With the coin-operated phonograph market increasing steadily, Rockola decided to move in the field of jukeboxes. One of the company’s first successes was the 1935 Rock-Ola.
