Bensenville provides exceptional benefits whether you run a business, live here or do both. Many businesses and residents choose Bensenville for its excellent location just 30 minutes from downtown Chicago, 1 mile from O’Hare airport, minutes from major expressways, and with immediate access to public transit. With respect to the business community, the Village boasts a large industrial base made up of the full range of manufacturing, logistic, and flex uses that is composed of enterprises of all types and sizes. These make Bensenville a major employment center within the Chicagoland region. Complementing this is a broad range of commercial uses that meet the day-to-day needs of residents, employees, and those from outside the community. The commercial areas of the Village are diverse just like the industrial areas which range from a large-scale shopping center, national chains, “mom and pop” local businesses, and pedestrian-oriented uses located within the high quality downtown area. These qualities along with the superb recreational facilities, including Redmond Park and the Edge Ice Arenas, continue to draw and retain residents of all ages. Finally, the Village is proud to host numerous events that draw thousands of people from throughout the region all year long including the Music in the Park series, Holiday Magic, July 4th Parade, International Bike Race, and Father’s Day Fishing Derby. The list of assets goes on and on…so we believe that you will find Bensenville to be an exception place to do business.
The mission of the Community & Economic Development Department is to maintain and enhance economic stability and quality of life of the Village. Toward that end, the Economic Development Department seeks to attract, retain, and promote business of all kinds to create and maintain a diversified and sustainable economic base for the community. This provides a stable source of tax revenue for the Village that benefits not only Village residents, but the entire region. The Village desires to create, maintain and enhance distinctive and profitable places to shop, work, and run a business to the benefit of all property owners in Bensenville. We strive to do this by maintaining a climate that is business-friendly, as we are here to serve and assist existing and new businesses such that they can be profitable and create quality places to operate and to work.
