About Chip and Joanna

Gaines-WebThe owners of Magnolia Homes in Waco, Chip and Joanna Gaines are our celebrities in town as the stars of HGTV’s hit show “Fixer Upper”.   They call Waco & the Heart of Texas their home.  The couple’s local businesses include Magnolia Homes, Magnolia Realty, and Magnolia Market, Magnolia Seed & Supply, and Silos Baking Co. in Waco, and two vacation rentals:  Hillcrest Estate in Waco, and  Magnolia House in nearby McGregor.  They live with their four children on a farm near Waco.

Although Season 5 will be the last season of Fixer Upper, we know that so much more is yet to come for this dynamic couple. They are renovating a restaurant that will be called “Magnolia Table,” and one of the Silos will become a shop called “Chip’s Corner.”
