As a young girl, owner Faith Weinberg took annual family vacations to Tucson, Arizona, where she fell in love with the culture and lifestyle of the American West.
Although she started her retail career in Seattle, she eventually landed in Cave Creek, Arizona in 1999. The inspiration for the name Big Bronco is based on an old coin-operated riding horse that she spotted in Seattle. She has a 1940’s antique version of the horse displayed on the store’s front porch.
In 2000, the Big Bronco Gift Store opened in its current location on Cave Creek Road. But as the Cave Creek and surrounding area real estate markets began to explode, the demand for Western style home furnishings grew along with it.
