Restaurant Start-up Program
The Restaurant Start-Up Program is designed to make it easier for you to start a restaurant in the City of Chicago. The City will be more of a partner helping you grow and create jobs by making the start-up process easier, reducing inspection visits and wait times through a team-based approach, helping restaurants pass their inspections, and increasing inspection transparency.
This website has all the information you need from comprehensive Start-Up Guides, necessary forms to complete to a list of community partners/city agencies that can help you along the way. For any questions, contact
