Mesquite was built by a rich culture of Real go-getters who weren’t afraid of trying new things and standing out from the pack. From the days of settlers staking their claim outside of Dallas in 1887, to innovators choosing Mesquite as the place to build, this city is your best bet for staking a claim of your own.
Exponential growth in the 1950s saw iconic retail and entertainment venues emerge in Mesquite. The Mesquite Championship Rodeo, made famous by the legendary rider Neal Gay, drew world-wide attention and earned Mesquite its distinction as the official “Rodeo Capital of Texas” by a vote of the Texas Legislature. Mesquite was home to the Southwest’s first enclosed, air-conditioned mall, and in 1971, Town East Mall was developed. This shopping hub provides 1.2 million square feet of space with a customer draw that makes it a retail giant in North Texas. Mesquite’s AMC 30 cinema is one of the largest movie theaters in the world.
Mesquite’s industrial leaders and entrepreneurs lead the pack as well. Companies like Fritz Industries and Horticultural Marketing and Printing (now a division of Orora Visual) began right here in Mesquite as modest family owned businesses that have grown to be international manufacturing and distribution companies that serve customers ‘round the globe. And don’t let the size of smaller companies fool you. Just look at J&R Manufacturing. This company, that was planned on the back of a napkin, is the manufacturer of wood-fired smokers that are the heart’s desire of culinary giants worldwide.
