“Texas Friendly Spoken Here”

"Texas Friendly Spoken Here” is a tourist slogan from 1988. It’s almost unknown outside of Texas.


6 September 1989, New York Times, “Promoting Texas: Ribs to Chili” by Anne S. Lewis, pg. C10:
Today, tourism is the state’s fourth largest industry. And Texas is taking no chances with that: the tourism division has instituted an in-state hospitality program to encourage Texans to be neighborly to their guests. The tag line? “Texas Friendly Spoken Here.”
