Home to various businesses, The Colony offers optimal employment for all residents within various industries, even offering the Pizza Inn corporate headquarters and an Edward Don distribution plant.
The city has a history that only spans to 1969 when it was first developed by Fox and Jacobs, starting the first plans of a “dream city”. There were several homes added to the area, which created the community that stands today. In 1977, The Colony became incorporated, with great growth seen since the late ‘80s. Today’s city shows the changes and development that has since taken place in the newer area, representing homes that can cost a bit more than others in surrounding towns and cities, reaching as much as $500,000 or more.
