Why Dallas

We’re Dallas, and you belong here. Why? We have a top-ranked business climate, a workforce that’s highly skilled and highly educated, and a center location that’s second to none. Business just works better here.

Low taxes, a low cost of doing business, and a business-friendly environment that sets us apart. Those are just a few of the reasons that 18 Fortune 500 companies, 12 of Forbes top private companies, and nearly 40 among the Fortune 1000 call the Dallas region home.

It’s also our people. We have 12 major four-year universities in the region and seven community college districts. That, combined with a population that’s growing by one person every four minutes, and you have a motivated, highly skilled, and highly educated work force.

And it’s our accessibility. Due to DFW’s central location and world-class transportation infrastructure, it is easy to do business locally, nationally, and globally. DFW International Airport features easy, non-stop flights to all major U.S. cities and direct routes to multiple gateway points in Europe, Australia, South America, Asia, and the Middle East. And being in the virtual center of the country, we are fast becoming one of the top logistics and distribution centers in the world.
