Most of us are familiar with the large scale corporate news headlines and nitty gritty minutiae, but not as well acquainted with the local small fry. Fortunately, the good folks at the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (DBACP) have your back. Not only are they regulating and licensing businesses in and around the city, but they are also providing informative sessions for business owners of all sizes. As well, their website is a goldmine of information and free goodies.
One of the more surprising aspects of the DBACP is that they have been a staunch defender of the Chicago area’s entrepreneurial spirit. That’s not to mention the fact that they have been the proud recipients of the prestigious Golden Belt award for their efforts on the state and municipal levels. The best part is, they’re also open to the public as well. Whether you’re looking for the best place to dine, a new job or a new lease on life, the department of commerce can help you.
