Not long ago, Friscos booming growth earned it the title of Fastest Growing City in the U.S.

The suburb has been surpassed by others in recent years and is now among the top five fastest growing cities in 2019, according to an analysis by personal finance website WalletHub. Frisco, however, is still outshining other cities in one key metric job growth.

Frisco ranked No. 1 in job growth among cities with 100,000 to 300,000 residents. It was followed by Meridian, Idaho; McKinney; and Bend, Ore.

Frisco is home to the Dallas Cowboys headquarters and an expanding landscape of office campuses and will soon be the Silicon Valley of golf when PGA of America finishes moving its headquarters from Florida.

A recent study also named Frisco the most surprising city to live in if you want to make a lot of money.

WalletHub examined 515 cities and ranked them based on 17 different metrics, including job growth, unemployment, poverty rate decrease and median household income growth. It used data that spanned 2010 to 2018 from sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

In 2016, Frisco was the fastest growing city in America, according to WalletHubs annual analysis of government data. The city, a magnet for high-paying jobs and lucrative development in recent history, has since fallen from that nationwide pedestal.

This year, Frisco landed the No. 5 spot overall on WalletHubs list behind Lehigh Acres, Fla.; Mount Pleasant, S.C.; Bend, Ore.; and Enterprise, Nev. When broken down by size, Frisco looks even stronger, jumping to third among mid-size cities. Austin took the top spot for fastest growth among large U.S. cities (Dallas ranked 20th).

Unsurprisingly, Texas placed eight cities among WalletHubs top 30 the most of any state.
