The owners of Pardner’s Garden & Feed Store (near Preston Road and Main Street), Coy and Diane Miller, met in Frisco in 1989 and married in 1991. Since 1999, they have worked together at one of our community’s oldest businesses, established in 1971, purchased by Mr. Miller in 1978. After all these years in Frisco, these longtime residents could not be happier.
Mr. Miller considers himself doubly blessed to work at his dream job and do so alongside his wife, who he credits for the store’s ongoing success. In previous years, Mr. Miller was active with the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, the school board and the school bond committee. For two decades he helped run the Frisco Fair and Livestock Show, before it ended in 2000, and served on the Frisco Buyer’s Committee.
Prior to Pardner’s, Mrs. Miller worked in the oil business and at Fowler Middle School in Frisco ISD. If there is one thing about Pardner’s she especially loves, besides getting to work alongside her husband, it is the loyal group of customers who visit their store.
In 2016, the FISD dedicated Coy Miller Elementary in Little Elm to honor his longtime contributions to the community. On the first day of every school year, the Millers are front and center to greet every student as they embark on a new school year.
During their time in Frisco, the Millers have been a blessing! They feel lucky to call Frisco home.
