In 1977, after 10 years of playing football at the collegiate and professional levels, Heisman Trophy winner
John Huarte decided to focus his leadership and team-building skills on a new business endeavor.
He took a leap and signed a lease on the back of a cardboard box, opening the first Arizona Tile location in
San Diego, California.
Forty years later - With hundreds of employees, nearly half of which have been with the company for over a decade, and many who have been with the company since the beginning, unparalleled customer service, and products from around the world - Arizona Tile has become one of the leading tile and slab distributors in the U.S. Our products are distributed to residential and commercial customers throughout the Western United States.
