Fresno is a very large city in California in the San Joaquin Valley with a population that has grown exponentially over the years. From a population of 134,000 in 1960, the city went to 428,000 in 2000, and 20 years later in 2020 had grown to 542,000. In fact, it is the 5th largest city in California in terms of population and the 34th largest in the US, and yet many people have hardly heard of it. The name “Fresno” is the Spanish for ash tree.
Fresno is a center of agriculture and in Fresno County over 350 different types of crops are grown, many of which are not grown commercially anywhere else in the US. Indeed, 99% of all raisins in the US are grown in Fresno County, the number 1 being the Thompson Seedless raisin grape.
Most of the nation’s supply of figs are also grown here amounting to 2,000 tons per year. 50,000 tons of almonds are produced, and also 5,000 tons of walnuts. Citrus grown includes Navel and Valencia oranges, tangerines, mandarins, and more. Peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots – the list goes on – along with canning tomatoes, and thousands of acres of onions, garlic, green peppers, lettuce, sweetcorn, and broccoli. There is also a multi-million-dollar dairy industry, and sheep graze the westside hills near Coalinga.
Visiting Fresno on Business? Find a Short Term Rental Fast
Indeed, if your business is anything to do with agriculture, it is quite likely that your company would send you here on an assignment, and if that is the case you probably won’t want to stay in a hotel for several weeks, but in Fresno corporate housing which we can provide at Key Housing Connections.

Many folks who come to Fresno on business want a “home away from home,” meaning that they want best-in-class corporate housing. A short term rental can make your stay in Fresno seem more like a “home” than a “hotel.”
Much More Space
One of the big advantages of corporate housing in Fresno is that you get much more space, a typical one-bedroom apartment being twice the size of a hotel bedroom. And, of course, one of the biggest benefits of Fresno corporate housing is the cost. You get a much bigger bang for your buck. You can shop and eat just as you would at home, instead of using the hotel dining room or having to eat out all the time. Things such as laundry are included, as you have a washer/dryer and ironing facilities, and you get high speed internet and cable TV as well. And when it comes to the odd bottle of local Fresno vino, that is far less expensive than hotel charges.
There is no comparison when it comes to hotels -v- corporate housing, so contact us to tell us your requirements.
