The journey wasn't easy at the beginning. The idea was developed when the owners, who have worked in pizza industries since 1989, wanted to have their own identity on creating a unique taste that people would fall in love with. They wanted to start their own pizza venture, but at that time, they didn’t have the funds to do so. However, Mr. Cheema’s sister and family, who resided in Canada, provided the funds to start up the business. Can Am Pizza was established on April 14, 1999 in Kent, Washington. In the first year, Mr. Cheema and Mrs. Cheema worked every single day, even staying after midnight hours, to brand their name and provide customers quality food. After a year, Can Am Pizza started to bloom.
