The City's population has grown 470 percent since 2000, and has consistently been one of the fastest-growing cities in the country for two-decades. In fact, the 2010 U.S. Census shows Frisco was the fastest-growing city in the nation between 2000 and 2009.

The Frisco Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) was created in 1991, when Frisco voters approved a half-cent sales tax to fund economic development in the city. The FEDC operates as a Texas non-profit corporation and is governed by a seven-member board of directors appointed by the Frisco City Council.

Job number one is creating jobs, as the FEDC’s mission is to improve the economic opportunities and quality of life for all Frisco residents. Since its establishment, the FEDC has helped facilitate every major economic development project in the City of Frisco, resulting in more than 350 projects that have the potential to occupy over 450 million square feet of commercial space, generate new capital investment in excess of $8 billion, and create or retain more than 78,000 potential direct jobs in Frisco.
