WHO WE ARE
Meet the Desert lifestyle brand, enhancing Scottsdale residents, visitors, and small businesses alike - one day at a time. The desert is a very special place - it permeates your soul. Once you've had the opportunity to spend a little time here you'll soon realize just how special and unique it is.
Scottsdale Road was founded by a set of twins, who grew up in the Southwest, and understand just how enchanting the desert is. After nearly 30 years working at Corporate America's daily-grind, they looked at each other and said "I've had enough!" After multiple attempts at various ventures, with minimal success, their resolve brought them to the decision to begin a new. Tony thought back to a time when he was struggling with past failures and called to mind a quote by Thomas Edison:
"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
The stage was set, with its players identified and more determined than ever. Their quest was simple, create and share positive, happy, and inspirational stories from the desert, with the hope that they might inspire others to live a lifestyle like no other - it's hot and it's an attitude. . .
Our Mission - Inspiration through optimism; a luxury lifestyle - Scottsdale Road, embodying the desert allure and the essence of the thriving local community. Purveyors of locally respected, sustainable sportswear with a premium attitude. Partners and accelerators of small business and shepherds of philanthropy. Scottsdale Road, It’s Hot!
