‘Meet Me in McKinney’ campaign launches Tuesday to land Amazon’s second headquarters

0

“Meet Me in McKinney” is a new campaign that launched Oct. 17. The goal of the campaign is to attract Amazon’s second North American headquarters by allowing the community to share their story about McKinney and highlight what makes the city unique.

Amazon announced in early September it plans to open a second North American headquarters. Shortly afterward, McKinney Mayor George Fuller announced he and city staff will “proactively pursue a deal with Amazon.”

The Jorba family also donated a 100-acre property located in Honeycreek, a 2,500-acre development in the northwest sector of McKinney, to the city as one of the city’s top locations for a potential Amazon headquarters, Santiago Jorba, owner of Creu Capital LLC and grandson to the co-founder of Grupo Bimbo, said in a news release.

The campaign also released a video, seen below, highlighting different aspects of the city.

More information about the campaign can be found online at www.meetmeinmckinney.com.

Cities and regional economic development organizations have until Oct. 19 to submit proposals to Amazon. The tech giant is expected to make a selection in early 2018.
