Economy

Those staying in corporate housing in Gainesville, GA for business reasons might appreciate some information about the city’s business environment. Gainesville’s economy is based on livestock and farming, with some healthcare supporting the city’s revenue streams. By far, poultry farms are the central economic driver of the city, with over $3 billion in revenue annually coming from exporting broilers. The industry was originally developed by a feed salesman who provided chicks and feed on credit to farmers and then bought back the broilers a few months in the future. The purchase price included a profit for the farmer. That format has lasted for most of Greenville’s poultry farming, even until the present time. Poultry farms are the city’s largest employers. Top employers in the city include Koch Foods, and Fieldale Farms.
