In November 2019, the Chicken Ranch Rancheria of Me-Wuk Indians created the Chicken Ranch Economic Development Corporation (CREDC), a wholly-owned for-profit Section 17 federal corporation. The corporation is designed to augment non-gaming investment, employment opportunities, and economic diversification for the Tribe.

The goals for CREDC are:

Employment & Empowerment to employ as many Chicken Ranch Rancheria of Me-Wuk enrolled members, other Native Americans, and surrounding area residents as reasonably possible – empowering employees with a living-wage, on-the-job training, and career opportunities.

Financial Self-Sufficiency to utilize the profit from business operations to financially support Tribal Government programs, CREDC operations, and future investment activities. Profit is needed to self-fund all future business creation, retention, attraction, and expansion activities; and to pay corporate dividends to central government for essential government services.

Diversification to develop a structure that utilizes and leverages land, labor, and capital investment into businesses and industries that are commercially viable on and off reservation.
