Heather Bereckis | City of Elmhurst



Business Development Manager     

We invite you to picture your business in Elmhurst – close to everything, unlike anything. Elmhurst is an ideal location with proximity to major airports and minimum drive time to major market places. Situated as the eastern gateway to DuPage County, Elmhurst is located sixteen miles west of Chicago, minutes from O’Hare airport, and at the crossroads of key Illinois expressways. This dynamic suburban city is home to more than 44,000 residents and 2,500-plus businesses. The all-around appeal of Elmhurst is frequently recognized on “it” community lists and earned the city national recognition as one of Family Circle magazine’s Top 10 U.S. Towns to live in.

Under the leadership of the Assistant City Manager, the Elmhurst Economic Development Team offers business incentives including business grant incentives, TIF districts, sales tax incentives, and personalized site selection assistance. Whether you are a new business starting out, an existing business looking for a place to put down roots in Elmhurst, or an existing business planning to expand or downsize within the community, we are here to assist you. Our team will help you find the right location, navigate the permit and grant application processes, and discuss all Elmhurst has to offer you and your enterprise.
