Boingo Wireless is moving its corporate headquarters to Texas.
“With more corporate relocation and expansion projects than any other state, Texas remains the premier destination for companies looking to unleash their full economic potential,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “Boingo’s new office location in Frisco will bring more good-paying jobs and brighter opportunities for hardworking Texans in our state’s growing tech industry. I look forward to an ongoing partnership with the company as they prepare to relocate the company’s headquarters to North Texas.”
According to the company, Boingo is establishing a presence in Frisco, Texas, to position itself closer to key customers, attract high-tech talent and leverage the wealth of technology and innovation partners in the state. The move is expected to create 247 new jobs and generate approximately $1.48 million in capital investment. A Texas Enterprise Fund grant of $517,400 has been extended to Boingo.
“Expanding our presence in Texas is a strategic move for Boingo,” Mike Finley, chief executive of Boingo, said in a statement. “We already have long-established partners and employees in the state and opening a new office in Frisco supports our company’s vision and our ability to attract and retain top talent. It will allow us to connect deeply with regional key customers, engage with their communities and understand their unique needs.”
“We’re thrilled Boingo chose to grow its business in Frisco, one of the fastest-growing cities in the country,” said City of Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney. “This relocation is a major win for our city’s economic development. Innovation is a strategic focus for Frisco. Welcoming Boingo elevates our position among Smart Cities as a leader in 5G technology.”
“Frisco is excited to welcome Boingo in as our newest major employer,” said Frisco Economic Development Corporation President Jason Ford. “Boingo is a premier tech company that will join other top brands and market leaders in Frisco.”
A connection provider for global enterprises and large venues, Boingo provides wireless solutions to airports, health care facilities, sports and entertainment arenas, hospitality venues, military bases and government offices.
The company will continue to maintain regional hubs in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Las Vegas.
