Some high profile Texans may be eating a little sushi and sipping some of Napa Valley’s best this week as Texas executives and economic developers are in San Francisco once again working to sell California companies on the joys of Tex-Mex and barbecue.

Led by Texas Economic Development Corporation, in partnership with the Office of Gov. Greg Abbott, the mission is designed to carry the message that companies can “Go Big in Texas” among an audience of corporate executives, site selectors and others involved in expanding and relocating businesses.

“The Lone Star State is the ultimate destination for economic success,” said Abbott. “From our world class infrastructure to our strong right to work laws, Texas remains the envy of the nation. I am grateful that this delegation of business leaders and developers have the opportunity to share what makes Texas so great. Whether you’re an entrepreneur in California or a business owner from the East Coast, I encourage everyone to consider making a fruitful investment in the Lone Star State.”

The delegation in California includes representatives from Texas Economic Development Corporation, the Office of Governor Greg Abbott, BNSF Railway, The Borderplex Alliance, City of El Paso, City of Schertz EDC, Greater Houston Partnership, Irving Economic Development Partnership and San Antonio Economic Development Foundation.

“Texas has a strong track record of attracting companies from California to expand or relocate to Texas,” said Robert Allen, president and CEO of Texas Economic Development Corporation. “Our business-friendly climate, overall lower cost of living, and skilled workforce are just some of the factors that appeal to companies like Toyota, Apple, Google, LiveOps, and Oracle, which have expanded in Texas since 2014.”

Jamba Juice (Frisco), Jacobs Engineering (Dallas), Pegasus Foods (Rockwall), and Kubota Tractor (Grapevine) are just a few other California-based companies that found a home in the Lone Star State in recent years.
