BORN & RAISED IN THE USA
What started out in the mid 1990s as a few guys throwing a disc into banged up metal garbage cans has emerged as America’s #1 party sport. But “what a long, strange trip it’s been” for partners Charles Sciandra and Mitch Rubin.
Their passion and vision for the game is the cornerstone of KanJam’s success. Now synonymous with tailgating, camping, beach parties, school gymnasiums, college campuses, neighborhood parks and backyard parties, the game played everywhere might not have been played at all if not for the ingenuity and perseverance of the KanJam partners.
When we first started our company in 2006 it was presumed that our KanJam game was manufactured in China. After all, wasn’t every sporting good and game item made there? People were surprised to hear that we could manufacture a product made from plastic here in the USA and make it better, and less expensive. KanJam is proof that good old fashion American ingenuity, technology and partnering with your suppliers can get it done.
It seems like it was just a few short years ago that we were assembling KanJam games late nights in the basement. Today KanJam has a robust product line including: Kan Jam Mini, Kan Jam Splash, Kan Jam Gliders, various Glow-in-the-Dark products, Custom Flying Discs and accessories. KanJam products are also sold in over 5,000 retail locations across the USA, in 23 countries in Europe, across Canada, Australia and New Zealand. KanJam is also growing in schools as part of physical education curriculums across the USA. Today, over 5,200 schools use Kan Jam and counting!
So yes—we know not every product can be manufactured in the USA, but we do know it’s possible and often times likely that you can make it better, faster, and more profitable here in the good ol’ USA!
