Owners Jason and Shannon Pryor met in 1999 while working for Amazon.com; Shannon in Seattle and Jason in Atlanta. When it was obvious this was to be a long-term relationship Shannon relocated to Atlanta to be closer to Jason. Shortly thereafter the couple moved back to Shannon's hometown of Kansas City and settled in Brookside where Jason went to work for Costco.
Jason noticed the old gas station up for sale on the corner of 51st and Oak. He was convinced it was a perfect location for a college pizza joint.
