The Chans family came to the United States in the 70’s and settled in Seattle in 1980. Equipped with years of experience in the hospitality field, the family decided to begin a new venture. Chans Place was opened in August 1980. Since then Chans has always been on the premises to supervise and ensure that everything is perfect. It is the Chans goal to provide the best service to their customers and that their staff's smiles are genuine and not just part of a uniform.
