Don Cantrell started working as a busboy, at the age of 16, for a California pizza franchise. He was with this franchise for over 27 years, and through hard work and determination, he became the proud owner of 9 franchised restaurants in Idaho and Washington. What an accomplishment! After dedicating himself to being a successful franchisee for several years, he decided to start his own franchise, which resulted in the concept of Idaho Pizza Company. Don started franchising Idaho Pizza Company restaurants in September of 1998.
