Already the corporate home to Pizza Hut, Frito-Lay and J.C. Penney — and soon-to-be home to Toyota of North America ­— Plano shows no signs of slowing down.


WalletHub just released its annual ranking of the best and worst cities to find a job in 2016 and Plano was crowned the best city in the country for job searchers.


In order to assess the strength of local job markets, WalletHub compared 150 of the most populated U.S. cities across 17 key metrics, ranging from job opportunities to employment growth.


After Plano’s top spot in the report, Irving landed at No. 4, Dallas at No. 24, Garland at No. 29, Grand Prairie at No. 32, Arlington at No. 41 and Fort Worth at No. 45.


Overall 16 Dallas-Fort Worth cities made the list.

*  San Antonio-based USAA’s opening of an information-technology center in West Plano that will employ almost 700 high-tech workers.


*  FedEx Office and Print Services is moving its corporate headquarters to Plano. The project is part of a mixed-use project with offices, apartments, retail and a hotel on 240 acres surrounding the J.C. Penney headquarters.


*  A new 17-story, upscale high-rise called Haggard Place is planned for the corner of Spring Creek Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway on the former Haggard family farmland.
