Ken Van Zandt (Founder of Territorial) was born and raised in Tucson 75 years ago. His father was born in the Territory of Arizona in 1905 outside of Phoenix on his grandmother's ranch. Ken's grandfather rode horseback into Arizona in 1881 and his grandmother arrived by wagon train in 1892 from Maryville, California. She was 16 at the time and the trip took two years and her mother was part Donner Party.
While Ken served 21 years for the Tucson Fire Department he started our company and continues to work in the business since retirement.
