Cannon Builders is a second generation, family owned business headquartered in Blackfoot, Idaho. Joe Cannon founded the business in 1976. The early projects included repairing property damaged by the Teton Dam flood which occurred in the same year.

The business started small and simple with two employees, including Joe, and a wheelbarrow. Their first project, a local picnic shelter, was worth a few thousand dollars. Joe’s strong work ethic and commitment to excellence caused his business to increase substantially. Just prior to Joe’s retirement, he completed a three-span bridge over the Snake River with a contract value of several million dollars.

Curtis Cannon began working on the construction crew for his father, Joe, at a young age. He enjoyed the satisfaction of being part of a building team, despite the fact that he was often on the cleanup crew. Many of the employees Curtis worked with then continue to work for the company today.

After graduating from the University of Utah in 1999, Curtis returned to Cannon Builders and worked as an estimator and project manager. In 2007 he was named CEO; now, all construction and business operations are under his direction.

Core Values

Cannon’s success is credited to their employees’ commitment to do the work “safely, properly, and fast.” The company also recognizes that success is largely the result of relationships built throughout many years of business with employees, owners, engineers, architects, and other contractors. Cannon believes the mandate to “do unto others as you would have done unto yourself” is not only good religion but also good business.
