In 1836, John Kirby Allen and August Chapman Allen purchased a little over 6,600 acres on the banks of the Buffalo Bayou. With a small investment, the town would soon become the city of Houston. What started as a market center for trading now has become the fourth largest city in the United States. Industrial resources such as the building of railroad systems and the shipping channels expanded over time the likes of which opened a gateway to global trade. This gateway set the path for the trajectory of Houston’s economic growth into what it is today, and eventually for us to start Unique Digital here. 

Everything is bigger in Texas, and it’s all even bigger in Houston. With more than 145 different languages spoken, the city is a melting pot of people and culture and has become one of the most diverse cities in the United States. Houston is the home to more than 10,000 restaurants which represent more than 70 countries. Home to the largest medical center in the world, the Texas Medical Center gets an average of 7.2 million visits per year. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is one of the largest rodeos in the world. With the help of Corny dogs, fried Oreos, carnival rides, and musical performances, the month-long event attracts millions of attendees each year. Houston is also the energy capital of the world and the home base for every segment of the energy industry, particularly oil. You get the idea – there’s a lot going on here. 

Since business in Houston is always booming, there is a continuous need for better and bigger technologies that can keep up with the multitude of business initiatives. This is where Unique Digital comes into play.
