Yay! Always like to hear this, especially when it's a smaller indy biz or start-up. Welcome and all success to them.

Wow!!!! Good times , I can't wait.

Always like to see new business open up in Plainfield and wish them success, but, these types of business do not add to the process of making Plainfield a destination to come to. This is why it is difficult to attract higher end types of business to come because it shows the total lack of support for anything other than small mom and pop or strip mall entities. Sad.

I agree that we need more diversity of the businesses to bring a diversity of other development, Grandpamike, and support any effort to bring more than the smaller businesses in. But I have to also be with you on wishing every business nothing but success, in hopes they become part of a broad commercial landscape of Plainfield.

I always enjoy seeing new businesses come to Plainfield. Mayor Collins did address several new businesses coming to Plainfield at the state of the village address. It may seem like there are more businesses coming to the Village but it seems for every one that opens another closes. I'd be curious to see a list of all the ones that have closed in the last year.

While it's great that there are new businesses opening here it would be nice to see some major chains come that aren't burger joints.

Oh and remember when we were going to have our own movie theater. It would be nice to not give Naperville and Bolingbrook our money.

Does the Village still have the Business Evolution Center available for small start up businesses?

The McDonald's opening soon near 135th & Rt. 30 (whether you are a McDonald's fan or not) will serve as a major catalyst for further growth in that area. Once that fish jumps into the pond, numerous naturally follow. It's a proven fact that many businesses, major as well as minor, wait for something like that to happen before making a move. As soon as a McDonald's opens up, it's the go-ahead sign for everything else. Because of this, within a couple of years the entire Rt. 30 landscape will change and it will be a bustling, viable business corridor.

Yeah, it's not a bank or car repair shop! We don't need any more on the north side.

@Frank That is certainly a view in the Pollyanna principle. The McDonalds on 127th Street, is that an example of all of the business buildout you talk of. How many business's have opened and closed in that location and also, what large types of business has grown out of that one ? Using the example of a business boom because of a McDonalds franchise opening is, at best, a fairy tale. What it would take for big box or large Corporations to open in Plainfield is a commitment by the town to offer incentives and the people to also make a commitment to patronize said business. It has not happened since I have moved here <8 years> nor had it happened prior to that. We are just one of the thousands of "strip mall" towns that dot the countryside, and will stay the same until we get capable, business oriented people working for the Village who have the knowledge and foresight to take action to build a better environment. We will never be Naperville, as we do not have the space for that type of expansion.

GM, the McDonald's on 127th came WELL after all of that development was already in place, a rare case where they've followed instead of lead. McDonald's does not plant new locations in obscure areas unless their research shows that it's a big-time good idea to do so. They're not often wrong, is all I'm saying.
