Aside from the cowboy boots, brisket and sweet tea there’s a lot more to Texas than meets the eye. Here’s twenty one things you probably didn’t know about the DFW.
7- Eleven was founded right here in Dallas in 1927 by a Southland Ice Company employee. 7- Eleven is now the largest chain in the world!
Do you remember Kevin from the hit show, The Office?! (If not, then bless your heart) Turns out he’s an SMU alum! #ponyup
The Dallas Cowboys that we know and love were originally known as The Dallas Steers.
Love margaritas with your chips and queso?! The margarita machines that we depend on to keep us from melting over the summer were invented right here in Dallas.
