Alta Sierra Pizza and Grill

This story was in The Union today.

We live in Alta Sierra and love the owners! Theirs is a true American story.

"Running a business is natural for the family –– they owned a jewelry store in their native Cambodia and worked for Ath Heng's brother's doughnut shop in Los Angeles when they first came to this country.

"Ath Heng immigrated in 2003 and his wife and daughters followed in 2006.

"In Cambodia, education is costly, Riya Heng explained. “We came to live the dream, for our dreams,” the Sierra College student said.

"Chev, who moved to Nevada County in 2004, learned of the opportunity to buy Larry and Lena's Pizza. He shared the information with the family, who packed up their things, moved to Alta Sierra and bought the business and a house.
