The historic tale of Sahuaro Trophy goes back several decades. The Jones family moved to Arizona in 1978 due to the work demands of Don Jones Sr. Three short years later, the family shifted over to Tucson where a small local shop caught their eye.
At that point, the original Sahuaro Trophy had been open for about ten years. It was currently on its second owner who was looking to sell the business. Being a family of self-proclaimed tinkerers, this was a golden opportunity. The Jones family purchased Sahuaro Trophy, and have kept it mainstay on the Sunshine Mile for nearly 40 years.
Over time, Sahuaro expanded its original space to nearly double in size. When Don Sr.’s health started to decline in 2011, he passed the mantle to his son and current owner, Don Jones Jr.
For the Jones family, they pride themselves in being a family-owned business and long-term Tucson residents. Their decades-long legacy as a business is a testament to their quality service and refined reputation.
Don’t let the “trophy” in their name mislead you though. They’re capable of all kinds of custom work including plaques, name tags, clocks, and more. They’ve even got a wide selection of eclectic Southwest-inspired gifts.
Stop by at Sahuaro Trophy and take a look around, you’ll be happy you did. As Don loves to say, “There’s nothing wrong with participation medals!”
