Partnerships for a Thriving Economy

The City of Menifee is constantly seeking new and innovative ways to partner with our business community to contribute to Menifee’s thriving economy. For this reason, Menifee offers attractive business incentives for incoming businesses that appeal to the needs and desires of Menifee's fast-growing community.


In 2014, the City Council approved the Business Incentive Program aimed at assisting in the acquisition of some of the most sought out after amenities, restaurants, and entertainment requested by residents and visitors, which provide a much needed job base, as well as revenue for vital city services. Incentives are offered on a case by case basis.
