Sims Salons may be a new idea and a new chapter in the Ray Family story, but the entrepreneurial legacy really began with Ellsworth Sims Ray, a young farm boy born in Chandler, Arizona in 1918. We can learn a lot from his extraordinary leadership and strong will. Ellsworth saught to balance a good education with religious values and work ethics. Given the opportunity of a basketball scholarship to Arizona State University, Ellsworth decided

instead to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Born 3rd generation Arizonans, Evan and Marissa Ray are working to continue to fulfill the legacy that Ellsworth left behind, and not only his legacy, but his values of consideration and working hard to accomplish one's goals. Evan and Marissa strive to make comfort and satisfaction the top priority. To them, SIMS isn't just a business, it's family.
