"City of Excellence"
Plano is its own city. While all of DFW is sprawled out to the south, Plano emerges with its own brand of excellence. Plano is unlike many of its neighbors who lean heavily on the economy and business of Dallas & Fort Worth, as the city has taken strides to create it’s own booming business platform.
A hub for many corporate headquarters, some of which are household names (like J.C. Penny & Dr. Pepper), Plano has secured more than its share of DFW’s economic windfall.
Plano is also acclaimed by Forbes to be the safest city in the nation. Which is just another reason to take a second look at this, “City of Excellence”.
