Chair Welcome

As the Board Chair for 2018, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2018-2019 Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce Membership Directory & Community Profile. Within these pages, you will find a plethora of businesses and organizations that represent almost every industry and fit every business and personal need. In addition, as you browse through the pages of this book, please pay particular attention to the many programs and activities that the Chamber has to offer to businesses and residents.

As a professor and student of business and the business environment, allow me to mention the new normal that exists in business today. This new normal revolves around one word – change. I tell students and aspiring business owners alike that there has never (ever) been a better time to start a business than now. Due to the relative ease of launching and the marketing avenues available to us today, it is by no means complicated to jump into the game.

However, while it is easy to start a business, it has never been more challenging to grow one’s business as it is in this day and time. Customers have more options, prices continue to get lower, service continues to get better, competition continues to increase – and Walmart and Amazon are not helping any of us out specifically.

We, as business owners and entrepreneurs, have a tendency to keep our heads down and dig in during times of change. We have a tendency to retreat to our silos and work our butts off. Instead, during this new normal, it is more important than ever to connect, collaborate and participate in order to stay ahead of the game. Whether it is goal setting or strategy, doing so by yourself may not be all that it takes. This new normal even more so screams about the partnership with an organization such as the Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce.

So whether you are in need of business and personal development, networking, education or marketing opportunities, take heart in knowing that you have come to the right place. And lastly, if you are not taking advantage of this network, this collaboration or the many events that are geared specifically to bring more awareness to your organization, 2018 is the year to make the Chamber work for you!


Peter James, Chairman

Mayor Welcome

When I reflect on Lisle and our dynamic and exciting business community, I am proud of the growth we have seen over the last year with new initiatives and projects on the horizon.

The village’s pro-business philosophy continues to encourage economic development throughout Lisle. We are honored to support many new and interesting small businesses and mid-sized companies, as well as corporate giants with a global presence – all of which have chosen Lisle and have become part of our great community.

We remain constant in striving to ensure that we are best serving the needs of our existing businesses as well as recruiting new businesses that will be welcomed community assets for years to come. The village is fortunate to have a professional staff eager to ensure that business needs are being met.

The village strives to create a collaborative environment that welcomes community participation, while we continue to challenge ourselves to leverage new ways to encourage and promote businesses.

The village’s invigorated philosophy is also one that encourages businesses who are contemplating their next home to Think Lisle first. We are a town of nearly 23,000 residents with a daytime population of 34,000. Over 32,000 vehicles travel our Ogden corridor each day, and prime redevelopment opportunities existing both along the corridor and throughout the village. With this, a luxury apartment development, the Marq on Main, being built in the village’s downtown and new restaurants in several locations, Lisle has a momentum that is attractive to new businesses and those seeking to expand. We are also fortunate to possess a unique, small-town character that adds a welcoming dimension to our village.

We are home to more than 1,000 businesses, two universities, three top-notch full service hotels, many eclectic dining options and have the highly acclaimed Morton Arboretum neighboring to the north. Our diverse business community continues to experience exciting growth – both in our reinvigorated and pedestrian-friendly downtown area, and across our fine village into other thriving business districts.

I would like to personally thank each of the businesses that serve to make Lisle a dynamic place to do business. Here’s to continued growth in 2018 and beyond.

Christopher Pecak, Mayor
