Toyota Scouts North Texas


 

We hope you saw Terry Box’s recent story in The Dallas Morning News about Toyota’s arrival in North Texas. We always enjoy Terry’s writing and we just loved the fun map illustrating his story.

 

The map, which coins the term “Toyotaville” for the site of the automaker’s new North American headquarters in Plano, highlights some of North Texas’ most-prominent companies, including Toyota’s new neighbors at Legacy Business Park, Frito-Lay (dubbed “Potato Chip Place”) and J.C. Penney (“James Cash City”).

 

A few other North Texas businesses to make it onto the map include 7-Eleven (“Slurpee City”), Kimberly-Clark (“Diaper Downs”) and the Mark Cuban Cos. (“Sharktown”). But, of course, our favorite is “Ukuleleland” aka Ebby Halliday Realtors. In case you didn’t know, our beloved founder, Ebby Halliday, is well known for her penchant for playing “Happy Days are Here Again” and other fun songs on her ukulele.

 

As Terry’s story recounts, over the next 30 months, Toyota will pack up its North American headquarters in California and move to Plano. The relocation could involve up to 4,000 employees and their families. Hundreds of others who work at businesses associated with Toyota are also likely to be coming to North Texas soon.

 

The first organized visits to the area began last week, with 200 Toyota employees arriving to learn more about North Texas and check out neighborhoods and schools. Two waves of employees will arrive each weekend for the next 27 weeks.

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors is proud to extend a warm Texas welcome to Toyota, its employees, their loved ones and associated businesses. Welcome to the neighborhood. We’re glad you are here!
