Why Frisco Texas Has A Great Employment Outlook
There’s a rumor going around about Frisco, and maybe you’ve heard it too. The word around town is that Frisco is an amazing place to live and work, and to be honest, we’ve had a little part in spreading that rumor ourselves.
This is because at Taylor Morrison, we’re completely enamored with Frisco as the home of our Somerset Park community.
According to recent reports, Frisco is one of the top ten fastest growing cities in Texas and has experienced more than an eight percent population boost in just one year alone.
While this comes as no surprise to us, the growth in population has also been great for the economy in Frisco, making it a prime location for people who are looking for career and professional growth opportunities.
What Makes Frisco Such a Booming Economic Center?
Frisco is centrally located within Northern Texas. It serves as a central point between Dallas, Denton and Fort Worth. Frisco is located about 30 miles north of Dallas and has welcomed with open arms the many new corporations that want to call the city their home.
It isn’t just Frisco’s close proximity to other major economic centers in Texas that has earned the attention of so many companies. It’s also the fact that Frisco is supported by a strong infrastructure, great community and that it was recognized as one of the top 100 places to live in the entire country by Money Magazine.

People who chose to live in Frisco have the benefit of Dallas being right down the road.
This puts them in a direct line with the many major corporations that reside there. The Dallas – Fort Worth Metro area is home to the headquarters of Exxon, AT&T, Texas Instruments, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Tenet Healthcare and more.
While the Dallas-Fort Worth area as a whole is considered a strong economic center, you don’t necessarily need to leave the Frisco limits to build a career. T-Mobile, The Oracle Corporation, Ikea, Conifer Health Solutions and the Amerisource Bergen Specialty group are just a few of the top companies with a corporate location in Frisco.
Top Industries in Frisco

The top industries in Frisco are the ones that fall under the professional, scientific, management, and administrative umbrella. This makes sense considering that many top corporate offices can be found here and that the Dallas – Fort Worth area is becoming highly focused on innovative technology.
The second leading industry in Frisco is retail trade. One of our favorite things about Frisco is that the local shops and retail culture add something unique to the area. You’ll find the big box stores here, who contribute significantly to the local economy, but you’ll also find a wonderful mix of interesting, one of kind smaller shops that make Frisco the perfect destination for a day of window shopping.

To answer that question, we’re over here shaking our heads in an enthusiastic yes.
To support its entrepreneurs, innovative thinkers, artists and small business community, Frisco offers a program called LaunchPad City.
