Surprise City was established by Flora May Stadler in 1938. The Stadler named this town "Supplies," saying, "If this town is of great value, it will surprise you." The Surprise City authorities thought that Stutler's husband, real estate developer and state councilor Homer C. Raden had established the land, but according to the asset record found in 2010, it was discovered that Stutler owned the land before he met Raden. When Surprise was established, it was a town that had only a few houses and a gas station on each side of a mile (1.6 km) wide, separated from the land in order to build cheap houses for agricultural workers, but since then it has been growing very well. In 1960, the Shisei was implemented.
In the 1990s and early 2000s, several tens of thousands of retired people moved to Sun City Grand, a community of limited-age resorts, with a house built by asset development company Del Web. The Supplies are 5 miles (8 km) northwest of Sun City, developed by Dell Web, and adjacent Sun City West.
Sun City Grand became the promoter to increase the population of the city, and 10,187 towns were more than seven times or more 75,000 in 2004. With this rapid population growth, the city authorities estimate the population of over 103,000 as of 2007. There is a more conservative estimate by the National Census Bureau, but the city is using this figure for the project. The city's top 50 housing companies are in charge of building houses, with 32 out of the city's top 50. The city's property tax claims that it is relatively close to the city of Phoenix, and is the lowest in the state.

It is about 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Phoenix City.
