Royse City Community

Royse City is home to a growing number of young professionals and families. The average age within the city is 32 years old, and the educational attainment is higher than the national average. This has led to a population that is active, educated, and earns around $90,000 per year - far more than the national average. With 15,000 new homes in some stage of development, the city’s growth is expected to continue for some time. As it does, investments are being made in parks and recreation and the local school district. 

The city offers everything a family needs to enjoy life - affordable and beautiful houses, great schools, fun community events, shopping, dining, entertainment and abundant outdoor spaces. In addition, Royse City is adjacent to the Dallas Metroplex and all the activities and amenities found within the nation’s fastest growing city.

This growth has also led to Downtown Royse City growing to include new restaurants, boutiques and bars with an active nightlife. Downtown you can find breweries, coffee shops, community events and a pocket park that hosts live music throughout the year. Many entrepreneurs have been attracted to this vibrant ecosystem, choosing to start and grow their business here.
