Frisco is growing fast, and the United States Postal Service is issuing a new zip code, 75033 goes into use July 1.

More than 10,000 Frisco residents and 400 businesses will soon use 75033 as their new five-digit ZIP Code.

Frisco Mayor Maher Maso said Frisco is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and they have been preparing for the extra growth. 

"It's never a fun thing to go through, especially for those that are getting the new zip code, but it's something that weve been expecting for a long time," said Maso.

Over the last decade, new businesses have followed nearly 90,000 new residents into the city -- bringing about the need for the new zip code.

But for local businesses, like the Creative Fringe Salon, that means paying to change anything with the old zip code on it as well as notifying anyone who ships to them.

"That means we have to go call all our distributors that we get all of our products from, we would have to change obviously zip code for that, for it to come here," said Karbowski.

Karbowski said businesses also need new flyers, brochures and signage -- which could cost thousands.

The new zip code goes into effect July 1.
