About Oak Brook

We  understand your company is interested in a possible relocation to Oak Brook. Congratulations on a wonderful business strategy!  Oak Brook provides the best setting anywhere to work, live and play.

As you may know already, Oak Brook is the region’s leading corporate hub — and most business friendly. Oak Brook maintains one of the Chicago area’s lowest overall tax rates, and is centrally located to help you leverage every geographic advantage. Oak Brook’s proximity to major expressways and airports facilitates employee recruitment from multiple suburban markets.

All these factors make Oak Brook the logical headquarters choice for Duchossois Corporation, HUB Group, Rush Medical Center, Ace Hardware, Federal Signal and Blistex, to name just a few of the world-renowned corporations headquartered here. Plus, we offer an incredible selection of fine restaurants to dine at that include, Gibson’s Bar and Steakhouse, Perry’s Steakhouse, Michael Jordan’s, Wildfire, Antico Posto, Tuscany, the Clubhouse, Seasons 52 and the Cheesecake Factory to name a few.

With the relocation of the McDonald’s Corporation, we have an opportunity for an international corporation to occupy a beautifully wooded, 85 acre corporate facility, equipped with a hotel and large corporate training facility nestled in the middle of Oak Brook.  Additionally, we offer two other McDonald’s locations for redevelopment. One along our corporate corridor of 22nd Street and Spring Road, adjacent to the Oakbrook Center and the McDonald’s open space used as a soccer field for a combined total of 150 acres.

Additional reasons to relocate to and expand in Oak Brook are almost too numerous to list. They start with one of the region’s best sign ordinances, which allows companies located here to gain from extraordinary visibility.

Please also keep in mind that our community works diligently with relocating companies to ensure that permit requests and other necessary applications are completed in as timely, responsive and efficient a fashion as possible.

The quality of life in Oak Brook is unsurpassed by any community in the area. Oak Brook employees and visitors have access to the best shopping in the Chicago area, including the world-renowned Oak Brook Center.

The schools in Oak Brook consistently are ranked some of the highest in the state.

Employees and residents also have ample opportunities for sports and recreation, including one public and two private golf courses, miles of multi-purpose paths, and top-notch village and park district recreation facilities.

We believe that Oak Brook offers the best corporate address in the western suburbs, along with low taxes, excellent access, superior amenities, and incentives that make Oak Brook the place to be.
