24 Jun 2020

GRAPEVINE, TX -- The City of Grapevine, TX Economic Development Department recently launched a newly designed website to further strengthen its online presence and economic growth by offering a more robust and informative tool to prospective companies. The newly revamped website,, offers a dedicated search engine designed to easily navigate a concise and robust site selection template, web searches, and social media.

“Grapevine is a great place to do business - even a cursory glimpse at the numbers would show that - but we aren’t looking for just any company to settle down here. We value partners who see themselves as part of the fabric of our storied community, a place where tradition and innovation meet” said Bob Farley, Economic Development Director.

Historically, the City of Grapevine has partnered with regional chambers (Dallas and Fort Worth), site selectors, government agencies, and business owners. Over the last five years, Grapevine has seen over $1 billion in new private investment, including expansions by current successful companies like the Gaylord Texan Resort and American Airlines. Grapevine has successfully recruited businesses like Paycorn, Kubota North American Headquarters, and the Trade Group, adding on to its thriving corporate presence. “Our team does an incredible job of supporting established partners and introducing new stakeholders to the market,” said Bob Farley, Economic Development Director.

The Grapevine Economic Development team collaborated with Golden Shovel Agency for its redesign. The national economic development communications firm is recognized for its award-winning design and expertise in business and workforce attraction.

“Working with the Grapevine team on this design project has been a great experience. This site will be a great asset for companies and potential partners to understand opportunities in the area, as well as demonstrates their economic growth potential,” said John Marshall, President of Golden Shovel.
