Greater Oklahoma City is in the geographic center of North America equidistant from the east and west coasts and major trade partners of Canada and Mexico. The ten county region is at the crossroads of the U.S., sitting at the heart of three major national highways on the NAFTA corridor.
There's a reason Greater Oklahoma City is such a great place for business: Location. The ten county region is positioned within a day's drive of the rapidly-growing south-central region (OK, TX, AR, LA) projected to grow more than 44% during the next 25 years.
Mustang is a safe, vibrant bedroom community with a professional workforce where quality of life is the main attraction. Although settlers first came here in the late 1800s, Mustang was not incorporated into a city until 1969. Since then, our population has continually grown to 17,500, making us one of the youngest, fastest growing communities in the state.
There is a reason folks are attracted to Mustang: it has small town charm with quick and convenient access to metropolitan shopping and entertainment. We are located on the southwestern gateway to the Oklahoma City Metro area (pop. 1.3 million) at the intersections of State Highway 4 and State Highway 152, and just five minutes south of Interstate 40.
The community is located along the historic Chisholm Trail (famous for the cattle drives of the 1800's)
