In addition to a long-time retail filling station, in 2004 Prosper saw its second and third retail establishments arrive: a Sonic restaurant, and an Exxon “On The Run” station.
Well-known residents include current Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Torii Hunter, pitcher LaTroy Hawkins, and former Dallas Cowboys football player Deion Sanders who own large parcels of land. Many residents are professionals who commute to McKinney, Frisco, Plano, Dallas and neighboring communities.
