Mansfield, TX, January 20, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Texas Trust Credit Union took top honors, winning the 2011 Business of the Year Award, at the annual community awards ceremony of the Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce.

Texas Trust has been serving the community of Grand Prairie for more than 20 years. Two of its eight branches are in Grand Prairie and a third will be opening at the end of March.
