Business update: Homewood projects promise new businesses, big and small, in 2023

On Friday, Dec. 2, Homewood Mayor Rich Hofeld and Economic Development Director Angela Mesaros had a long day. 

It started with the groundbreaking in the morning for Homewood Brewing Company and ended in the evening with the annual Holiday Lights festival, one of the village's biggest events. 

Sandwiched between in the afternoon was a trip to an Illinois Restaurant Association meeting to promote the village. Hofeld and Mesaros regularly attend IRA meetings to make connections with restauranteurs in an effort to entice them to consider locating in Homewood.
