Fresno Marketing Resources

Kings River Sequoia National Park Fresno CAFresno is the financial, industrial, trade and commercial capital of California’s Central San Joaquin Valley. It’s the hub of a region rich in heritage resources and people, and is composed of a diverse mixture of industries, businesses, agencies and institutions. Two of Fresno’s top employers of 2014, Ruiz Foods Inc, and Wawona Frozen Foods are in the food industry (Fresno 2014 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report). Several other top employers of the same year were in the healthcare industry, including Community Medical Centers, Kaiser Permanente, Saint Agnes Medical Center and Clovis Community Medical Center. The unincorporated region and cities neighboring Fresno continue to be consistently linked to large-scale agricultural production, most of which is irrigated by the Kings River, which is located south of the city.

  • Located at the junction of Highways 41 and 99, Fresno is a major gateway for Yosemite visitors coming from Los Angeles.
  • The city also acts as an entrance into Sierra National Forest via highway 168 and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks via Highway 180.

A city is in the midst of a robust economic expansion, Fresno’s economic recovery is outpacing much of the rest of the country. Factors indicating a brighter economy for Fresno include,

  • Fresno will be at the center of the largest public works project in the country’s history, the construction of the $68 billion California bullet train. Transportation-related construction should be a major driver of the Fresno economy for years to come.
  • Increasing costs of doing business and living in California’s coastal cities should result in businesses seeking lower cost alternatives in the Fresno area.
  • Investors from other parts of California see current value and future growth in Fresno and are investing in the area. Highpoint Capital Group, a Los Angeles-based private real estate firm, purchased three high-profile shopping centers and announced plans to renovate them. SunPac Financial will merge with Fresno’s Security First Bank, expanding lending in the Fresno area.
  • Passage of the 2014 state water bond should help the area’s largest industry, agriculture.
