OpenPhone helps business owners build a presence in any US city with phone numbers available across the country. In Los Angeles, you’ll appear local. That makes it easy for customers to see you as part of the community and recognize that your business has a local presence and a stake in the city.

Area code 747 covers the San Fernando Valley portion of Los Angeles County, including Burbank, Canoga Park, Encino, Glendale, North Hollywood, Northridge, Panorama City, Reseda, San Fernando, Sylmar, Tarzana, Van Nuys, and Woodland Hills. You also find many smaller cities and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County immediately to the south and east. Area code 747 is an overlay of Los Angeles’ 747 area code. When 747 was introduced, it became the primary area code for most of the city, but the two area codes covered different territories. That’s no longer the case — 747 completely overlays area code 747 and both cover downtown Los Angeles.

Business owners should know that they can contact other Los Angeles businesses and customers in area code 747. Most will be in the biggest city of the zip code, Los Angeles itself, with a population of 3,898,747. Area code 747 touches both Los Angeles and Venture counties.

But there are plenty of nearby area codes in a city this big. Apart from overlay 818, there are 213/323 (Los Angeles, CA), 310/424 (Los Angeles, CA), 442/760 (Oceanside, CA), 626 (Pasadena, CA), 661 (Bakersfield, CA), 805/820 (Oxnard, CA), and 909 (San Bernardino, CA). Prospects in all of those area codes recognize 747 as local.

Area code 747 and
La La Land’s business outlook

With a nickname like Tinseltown, it’s no wonder many people both in and outside of L.A. think the city’s economy relies on just one thing: Hollywood. While filmmaking (and music, entertainment, and creative arts in general) have lots of support here, the reality is more nuanced and much bigger than the studios that built early Los Angeles. While some estimate the creative industries that fuel our imaginations constitute almost 20% of L.A.’s employment, that leaves a massive chunk for other endeavors, from finance to agriculture, aerospace, and energy.

The top three industries according to the US Census Bureau for Los Angeles, CA, are:
1. Educational services, health care, social assistance
2. Professional, scientific, management, administrative and waste management services
3. Arts, entertainment, recreation, accommodation, and food services.

It makes sense that arts and recreation are linked to related industries serving all the visitors heading to these popular destinations (like accommodation and food). With all those tourists flocking to sunshine and amusement parks, businesses based on the appeal of visiting Los Angeles continue to increase.

In this Pacific Time Zone city, you can find a much more diverse group of large organizations dedicated to serving local needs, too. After all, those creative workers need transportation, schools, housing, and medical care — the stuff of a thriving city where millions live their everyday lives. These industries and employers contribute to the city of Los Angeles’ median household income of $101,006.

The top ten employers in Los Angeles, CA, are all working to decrease Los Angeles County’s 12.3% unemployment rate. They are the Los Angeles Unified School District, Kaiser Permanente, Northrop Grumman, UCLA, University of Southern California, Boeing, Bank of America, City of Los Angeles, The Walt Disney Company, and Amazon.

While the central city population has dipped .17% in Los Angeles from 2019 to 2020, the metro area continues to be a prime place for new endeavors. New business applications are up 23% in the same period. And those businesses are flourishing. The state’s startup survival rate is 81.80%, providing another a great signal to start or expand here. With a bustling startup scene and deep resources to tap, Los Angeles’ size is a draw for entrepreneurs aiming to maximize the potential of their business.

Los Angeles also ranked 20 for the most connected cities in America, showing it's a prime place to build a local presence within.
