Coppell's history is one of slow, then unprecedented, growth. The area was first settled in the 1840s by French and German immigrants and named Gibbs Station after Barnett Gibbs. In 1892 the name was changed to Coppell, after a wealthy Englishman who had influence on the area. It remained a small, agricultural community for years until 1955 when the tiny town decided to incorporate.
Coppell continued to grow slowly but without much notice until 1974 when the Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport opened, and the tiny farming village transformed quickly into a thriving upper-middle class suburb. By 2000, most of the community's residentially zoned land was developed and the population had grown substantially. Today, the DFW airport remains a central focus of the economy and population of Coppell providing both employment and transportation opportunities.
Due to its proximity to major transportation sources like DFW Airport, the local economy continues to grow. Coppell is home to major employment sources like the U.S. Postal Service Coppell Mail Center, IBM and Lucent Technologies. In addition, CiCi’s Pizza corporate headquarters is located here. Also, Samsung started a new cellular phone manufacturing and distribution facility located in Coppell. The unemployment rate is 8 percent marking a 1.20 percent increase.
