Small Business Spotlight

Spot Light on OF Business Banner

Oak Forest is home to more than 350 businesses. Many of these businesses are small, independently and individually-owned businesses, who are at the core of our community. In response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, The City of Oak Forest collaborated with the Oak Forest-Crestwood Chamber of Commerce to create a new Small Business Spotlight for 2020. The goal is to raise awareness for residents about the businesses in our community, both new and established, and show them how much they mean to our community.

Due to the volume of incredible businesses, this Spotlight will focus first on the retail, restaurant and service businesses that serve consumers directly. Each one must have less than five total locations and be located only in Illinois.

New spotlighted businesses will be posted to social media and added to this site periodically. Check back often!
