Household Services such as Housekeeping, Gardening, Landscaping and Auto Detailing may not require as many licenses as food and healthcare businesses, but they must be licensed nonetheless. Businesses that use a person’s home as their official address or office may also need a Home Occupation Permit from their city or county.
At the heart of the San Joaquin Valley lies Fresno – a center of agriculture and commerce. Fresno supports its growth and development in part by being business friendly. The city keeps licensing to a bare minimum, while Fresno County regulates food, childcare and other industries that affect public safety and welfare. In addition to its extensive agriculture industry, Fresno is home to several major medical systems, insurance companies and telecommunication companies.
