Why Rockford, Illinois?
Rockford, Illinois is located in the burgeoning I-90 growth corridor and is part of the 3rd largest economic corridor in the U.S. /Close enough to Chicago to feel the breeze off lake Michigan, the Rockford region offers distinct business advantages that simply cannot be had in the "big" city.
Low cost of doing business
High quality of life
An abundance of available buildings and land
This is the last frontier of true midwestern opportunity, and we're expected to grow 22% by 2020. Our City of Rockford Administration and its county-wide economic development partners have hung out the "welcome" sign. The Rockford Region is truly open for business. Come see for yourself!
