Chicagoland Food & Beverage Network

We launched in 2017 with a unique mission: 

To leverage the power of the food & beverage industry in Chicagoland
to grow the industry, and the local economy.

We bring industry players together, provide a forum for collaboration and support, and better connect the 4,500 companies in the industry across Chicagoland to drive innovation and growth in the region.  We’re like an Industry Association, but with a higher purpose to address big issues like employment, economic development, entrepreneurship, and neighborhood revitalization.

  • Why Chicagoland? Why food & beverage?


    The size and breadth of the food & beverage industry in Chicagoland make it a critical piece of a growing and vital local economy.
