Why franchise in Chicago?
Where quality-of-life meets cost-of-living
Home to an unmatched talent pool and world-class dining, attractions, and cultural institutions, Chicago is one of the top cities in the US. Its economy is larger than that of many countries, with 62 Fortune 1,000 companies headquartered in the Chicago area, and a diverse mix of major industries means that the city is always positioned for growth.
With dozens of higher education institutions in the area, Chicago is an attractive place for employers looking to take advantage of a deep pool of well-qualified local talent. Plus, a lower cost-of-living than is found in other comparably sized US metro areas means that Chicago is continually chosen over other cities for corporate relocations and expansion.
