A favorable location among major interstate highways and within one of the country’s fastest growing counties, the availability of an educated and highly skilled workforce, low Will County taxes and much more make up just some of the reasons new businesses choose Frankfort as the ideal place to establish and expand operations of all kinds. The Frankfort Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the Village of Frankfort, strives to promote the area’s pro-business climate through unmatched marketing initiatives, business retention and economic development exploits and networking events. The leadership of entities such as this has succeeded in attracting new business and industry, while, at the same time, continuing to champion long-standing business establishments in the community.
Frankfort is composed of a highly diversified base of businesses. Among the major employers in the Village are Borg-Warner, a producer of precision mechanical seals; Pactiv Corporation, a manufacturer of polystyrene foam products; Phillips Chevrolet and Currie Motors, top auto dealers; and the local school districts.
Supplementing these companies are more than 120 industrial operations, which have made a home within Frankfort’s burgeoning industrial area. With the Village’s focus on developing its light industry sector, the industrial sector has continued to thrive—welcoming new businesses on a regular basis.
In addition to the area’s surge in industrial growth, Frankfort has experienced tremendous commercial development. The ongoing rejuvenation of its Historic Downtown Business District and the new developments of Prairie Crossing and further shopping plazas have welcomed new commercial businesses, from nationally known retailers to locally owned operations, to Frankfort.
A significant supply of available property is open for development in the Village, offering unlimited possibilities for future commercial and industrial expansion. Frankfort invites all types of businesses, both large and small, to discover the benefits of doing business here.
