Having this Fortune 500 company located in Frisco will continue to strengthen the city's position as one of the top corporate relocation destinations in the United States. With this move, Keurig Dr Pepper will have a direct impact on our city's corporate landscape for many years to come."
Ron Patterson, president, Frisco Economic Development Corporation said, "Keurig Dr Pepper's decision to locate here is a huge win for the city and residents of Frisco.
