Career expert website Zippia.com has ranked Frisco the second fastest-growing city in the U.S.
Frisco is no stranger to high rankings on the website. A few weeks ago, Frisco topped the list for being the most successful city in America.
This time around, rankings for the fastest-growing cities were based on the population growth rate between 2010 and 2014. Data was taken from the American Community Survey, through which 303 cities with populations of at least 100,000 were studied.
From 2010 to 2014, Frisco experienced a 21 percent population growth rate, according to the webstie. Many factors attributed to this rapid growth: the city’s proximity to Dallas yet its much calmer lifestyle has made Frisco a highly desired place to live, the website states. Many people love that while Frisco is a booming city, it still retains a small-town atmosphere.
The Dallas Cowboys global headquarters moving to Frisco is another attraction bringing attention to Frisco. Development of the “$5 Billion Mile,” with The Star facility featuring a new indoor football stadium and health center, makes Frisco an ideal place to live for sports fans and athletes.
Frisco ISD is the fastest-growing public school district in Texas. The competitive and smaller class-sized schools attract parents and students from all over the state and the U.S., according to the website.
Frisco was not the only city from Texas on Zippia’s most recent Top 10 list. McKinney ranked No. 6 and Round Rock No. 9 on the fastest-growing cities list.
Texas’s increasing size and success has made it a standout, so growth in the Lone Star State, particularly in Dallas-Fort Worth, is expected to continue.
