Welcome to North Texas! Major Companies Continue to Flock to the Area



Global powerhouses with household names and large workforces continue to flock to North Texas. Companies like Toyota, Pizza Hut, Keurig Dr Pepper, Frito Lay & JCPenney have all left their longtime headquarters and set up new ones right here. 

The latest of these is the PGA of America. who announced in December it would be making its new home in North Texas. 

"There's an ecosystem of companies there now and they're in very innovative cities," says Bryan Daniel, executive director for economic development and tourism in Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's office.

The corporate buzz about North Texas is focused on suburban communities, particularly in Plano and Frisco. But other communities – Allen, McKinney and Prosper – are waiting in the wings. Talk to anyone in the North Texas business community, and they tout a good cost of living, excellent schools, housing that's affordable with lots of price points, safe neighborhoods, access to arts and sports, racial and ethnic diversity and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The new PGA headquarters will span over 600 acres in Frisco. It will include two golf courses, a clubhouse, resort, conference center, retail stores, parks, trails and open space. With the golf courses expected to open in 2022, the hotel, convention center and other facilities will soon follow. The PGA headquarters is expected to bring 1,000 new jobs starting this summer.
