For the lifestyle, for the opportunity.

Incorporated in 2000, Elk Grove is a dynamic, fast growing, mid-size city of 175,000 in California’s vibrant Sacramento capital region – the center of the 5th largest economy in the world – where your business can start or scale at cost, with an unmatched quality of life, and all the assets and amenities Greater Sacramento has to offer.

We’re part of a mega-region, pulling capital, talent and innovation from nearby Silicon Valley and the Bay Area, and putting those assets to work in Elk Grove. Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley and the scenic Sierra Nevada mountains are short drives away. Sacramento’s urban core boasts professional basketball, baseball and soccer; concerts; museums; theater and the arts. And as America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, Greater Sacramento offers exceptional dining and 70 local wineries and 30 craft breweries to discover.

But at the end of the day what matters most is the quality of the community you do business in and your employees call home – and that’s where Elk Grove really shines. High incomes, affordable cost of living, great neighborhoods, friendly people, low crime, excellent schools and universities, over 100 parks and 30 miles of trails, plentiful dining and shopping, exciting events and festivals and a mild climate with over 265 sunny days per year. We could go on.

Our committed City Council and professional economic development staff will ensure we offer you the resources you need to start and succeed with your business and your people, all in heart of the most profitable state in the country.
