Five Key D-FW Business Stories You May Have Missed

Time is short and the news travels fast.

So, to keep you up to date with important Dallas-Fort Worth business stories that you may have missed last week, we’ve curated these five to quickly bring you back up to speed.

It was a week when Dallas morning news Writers landed exclusive interviews with prominent executives and scoops on the week’s biggest news stories.

Recession talk and other thoughts

Financial reporter Natalie Walters had a face-to-face meeting with Brian Moynihan, CEO of the country’s second-biggest bank, Bank of America. Her wide-ranging interview is packed with interesting insights, including Moynihan’s thoughts on why Dallas’ economy differs from what he sees in other parts of the country.

Dallas-style philanthropy

Columnist Cheryl Hall not only knows philanthropy in Dallas, but brings the biggest names in the donor world to the table. Margot Perot, unlike her late husband Ross Perot, stays out of the limelight and rarely gives interviews. When she donated $5 million for the amazing children’s playground at Klyde Warren Park, she decided to name it after her friends Jody and Sheila Grant. And Cheryl got Dame Perot to tell her the backstory.

(The Perot family hadn’t finished gift-giving, either.)

Find a new frontier

Aviation author Kyle Arnold learned of Frontier Airlines’ grand plan to establish a pilot and flight attendant base at DFW International Airport and ramp up flights to try to undercut local competition. The move brings jobs to DFW, creates new destinations for travelers to explore and puts pressure on competitors by landing with promises of lower fares. Will North Texas’ vital air hub soon become a battleground at the price?

Inflation? We’re having a turkey war

Most of the country is concerned about inflation and turkey shortages. But our retail writer, Maria Halkias, asked questions with this story that fully captures the highly competitive North Texas grocery store landscape. A full three weeks before Thanksgiving, three grocery chains are in a full blown price war to put a bird on your table. And one of these chains is just entering the D-FW market.

Like grandmother, like grandchildren

Few companies are more identified with their namesake than Addison-based Mary Kay Inc. Breaking News reporter Alexandra Skores hit it big with a story about Mary Kay Ash’s grandson, who took over the reins of the multibillion-dollar cosmetics empire. The return of the Rogers name to the C-suite would applaud the legendary Mary Kay.
