Over 160 years have passed since Fort Worth was a frontier outpost and became a layover for hard-bitten cowboys on Chisholm Trail cattle drives. While experiencing considerable growth, until recently the “big city with a small-town feel” was still considered the best-kept secret in north central Texas. But during the past few years, word has gotten out. Fort Worth’s convenient location, diverse economy, pioneering spirit and genuine friendliness has attracted visitors, residents, and businesses, pushing the population to 792,727.
Fort Worth is the 16th largest city in the United States and the fifth-largest city in Texas. Voted one of “America’s Most Livable Communities,” Fort Worth boasts a multitude of advantages that attract and retain businesses: a pro-business city government, an excellent labor force and highly competitive cost of living.
