5 Growing Industries That Are Providing Great Career Opportunities in McKinney, Texas
Your home should be the command central for your life. It’s the place where you live, love and grow with your community. While there are many factors that go into the decision to purchase a new home, one of the most important is location.
At Taylor Morrison, we’ve discovered that today’s homebuyers are looking for just the right combination of comfort, amenities, and location.
One of the most influential factors in choosing a location for a new home is its proximity to the buyer’s place of work or potential employment opportunities. This explains why one of the first questions a prospective home buyer has when looking at neighborhoods focuses on which industries are fueling the local economy and if they’re a good fit for their professional experience and skill set.
This is one of the reasons we chose McKinney, Texas as the location for our Willowcreek at Auburn Hills community. McKinney is a beautiful city that offers a welcome reprieve to the hectic pace of the Dallas Metro area. It’s the charm, character and welcoming spirit of McKinney that has made it one of the fastest growing cities in the nation.
However, it isn’t just the population of McKinney that is growing, the economy is keeping stride with many new businesses and industries helping to fuel the area’s economic growth. If you’re considering calling McKinney, Texas your new home, let us tell you a little bit about five of the area’s fastest growing industries.
1) Health Care Services
The Dallas News has listed career opportunities in health care and social assistance as an industry with the highest level of growth in the area. While the Dallas Metro area is a hot spot for health care service positions, those working in health-related fields will also find great opportunities at McKinney Medical Center, one of the largest employers in the immediate area.
Professionals in all areas of medicine, from registered nurses and patient care specialists to physicians specializing in very detailed areas of medicine, will love to call McKinney home.
From the local medical center to opportunities that expand into nearby Frisco and Dallas, this is a great area for starting or growing a medical career.
2) Hospitality and Food Services
When an area is experiencing the type of growth that McKinney is, it only makes sense that lifestyle industries like hospitality and food services are going to grow along with it.
For those looking to get a start in the industry, McKinney based Collin College offers a fully accredited Hospitality and Food Management program. There are plenty of great opportunities in McKinney and the surrounding areas to easily step into this industry in positions ranging from entry level to executive management.

McKinney is home to the Toyota dealership that was the first in the nation to earn the distinction of being a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) business.
The LEED rating, developed by the United States Green Building Council, was put into place as a way to encourage and provide an incentive for businesses of all types to move toward sustainable and environmentally friendly design in their construction.
McKinney is a community that takes pride in its natural beauty and the steps they take to protect it. For professionals interested in green careers, or a career with a green-minded company, the city of McKinney is a great place to call home.
4) Real Estate and Construction
While these are two separate industries, their growth in the area is fueled by the same thing – the fact that more people are falling in love with McKinney and want to call it home.
With more people and businesses moving into McKinney and the surrounding areas, there’s an increased demand for homes and commercial structures to meet the growing city’s needs.
This means that professions in all areas of real estate, construction, architecture and project management are expected to stay strong well into the future.
We know first-hand that there’s nothing more satisfying and rewarding than working in an industry where you play a part in connecting people with the home of their dreams.
