A lot is going on at the Business Services Center (BSC)!  Erik Cherkaski, Manager of the BSC is pleased to welcome the addition of two Business Services Coordinators to his team to increase awareness and provide the needed no-cost services to the West Side and East Side areas of Fresno County. 

The primary focus of Juan Carranza and Veronica Granados-McAlister will be to provide assistance and no-cost services to the business communities, municipalities and community-based organizations to facilitate their connection to vital resources and services in the rural communities.

  • The West Side rural communities include Huron, Coalinga, San Joaquin, Mendota, Kerman and Firebaugh and will be assisted by Juan. 
  • The East Side rural communities will be assisted by Veronica and include Sanger, Selma, Reedley, Kingsburg, Orange Cove, Fowler, Del Rey and Parlier.

In addition, they will utilize their years of experience in community relations, business services, economic development and workforce development to serve their respective areas. They will meet with municipal leaders to better understand their needs, goals, and business community challenges in order to develop collaborative strategies for the benefit of our rural communities. And, they will also work to connect our West Side and East Side businesses to resources and services that could potentially prevail over current challenges and facilitate the achievement of near-future goals.

Juan and Veronica will have occasional office hours in various rural communities on the West Side and East Side to meet with businesses. Check our website at www.fresnobsc.com for dates, hours and locations.
