This business-friendly city offers entrepreneurs a world-renowned, master-planned business and residential community—Las Colinas—and a Class A office-and-distribution business park with direct links to DFW Airport.

“We work hard to recruit relocating companies, encourage new business start-ups and support the continued growth of existing ones,” says John M. Bonnot, Vice President of Economic Development of the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber. “Our strategic location next to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, vast transportation network, , business-friendly city government, low cost of living, , a large and highly educated workforce, along with no state income tax, are some of the primary drivers attracting companies to the area.”
