With an easy commute to Dallas, Plano, McKinney and Frisco, residents have plenty of job opportunities, especially due to some of today’s major corporations’ headquarters located within the region including Frito-Lay, JCPenney and Country Wide Financial. Because of this, residents can work in the big city and return home at the end of the day to a small town community.
