Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Texas Ranks 1st for Most Fortune 500 Companies

Texas Ranks 1st for Most Fortune 500 Companies

It's no wonder that Texas is getting so much relocation from across the country these days.  We're the place to work, which means we're the place to live.  Texas has finally beat out New York for the most Fortune 500 Companies across the state.  Texas has 58, New York fell to second with 55, and California has 52.

Some of those companies are Frito Lay, Blockbuster, JC Penney, Exxon Mobil, Brinker International, Michaels AT&TArts & Crafts (my previous employer), AT&T, Dell, DR Horton, Centex, and many many others...

WalMart, in Arkansas is ranked #1 while ExxonMobile, in Irving, TX, is ranked #2.

Here is a full list of the top places.Dell

 If you're thinking about relocating, think of all the jobs being offered in Texas, and especially in the Dallas Metroplex. 

Remember, I work all of North Dallas County and Collin County including Richardson, Plano, Allen, Frisco, Carrollton, Garland, Rowlett, McKinney, etc... my car will take us anywhere you need to go!! 

 ARE YOU PACKED YET?!

Great blog Donna. So many buyers come to Texas simply because of our strong economic infastructure. Jobs, jobs and more jobs, terrific highways, hospitals and the great city of Dallas. Your market is surviving the storm according to your previous blogs. Congratulations & best of luck! Don't forget about... BlueBell Ice-cream & Shinner Bock Brewery! Gotta luv that old fashion buttered pecan!

Greg, Yes, who can forget about Shiner?  The only Domestic beer who can charge an Import price "just because".

Donna, this was a great tribute to employers finding our state with all its benefits and settling in their headquarters here. Research In Motion and Fluor are two of the newer ones in North Texas.
