Foundation Repair in Plano Texas
Plano, TX was founded in the early 1840s. The population of Plano initially grew slowly and by the 1960 the city counted just over 3,600 in 1960. By 1980, the population had grown rapidly to about 72,000. Lots of infrastructure work was able to keep up with the growth in part due to how flat the land is but also thanks to good city planning.
In the 80s several corporations moved their headquarters to Plano and that also helped the city grow. Companies like Frito Lay, JCPenney, Pizza Hut and others have created tens of thousands of jobs in Plano over the last few decades.
In the 90’ and up to today, Plano has received several awards and recognitions for being one of the best places to live in the nation. In 2010 the census counted slightly over 259,000 people and the medium income for a family was just over $101,000.
