With economic development on the rise, the Town of Flower Mound is seeking input from the community to determine the restaurants and retailers residents would like to see come to Flower Mound.
By participating in the 2013 Restaurant and Retail Survey, the town is able to collect data to be used in the recruitment of the top 50 ranked businesses in each category, town officials said.
“Having this data on-hand to show site selectors and real estate directors indicating Flower Mound residents would support their business is an invaluable tool,” said Economic Development Director Mark Wood. “More importantly, bringing the quality restaurants and retailers residents desire is our top priority, providing more opportunities for everyone to invest in Flower Mound by shopping and dining locally.”
The town conducted its last survey in 2011 and since then has attracted retailers Market Street (ranked as the No. 6 most-requested retailer), Academy Sports & Outdoors (No. 10 on the list), Wal-Mart (No. 26), Nothing Bundt Cakes (No. 39), Steinmart (No. 44), and 7-Eleven (No. 49 on the list with three Flower Mound locations).
Flower Mound has also attracted several most-requested restaurants including Jimmy Johns (ranked No. 45), Dunkin Donuts (No. 50 and coming soon), and most recently – La Madeleine. La Madeleine has consistently ranked as a top choice in the last three Flower Mound Retail and Restaurant surveys. It was chosen as No. 2 in 2003, No. 7 in 2007, and No. 4 in the most recent 2011 survey.
The survey is available online at www.flower-mound.com/survey through September 13 and will also be distributed to households in the August utility bill insert.
Residents may also stop by Town Hall, 2121 Cross Timbers Rd. to pick up or drop-off their survey.
Surveys must be completed and returned by September 13, 2013.
