Business Growth

The Rochelle Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping small businesses. Whether it’s working to welcome and market your business, connecting you to state and national resources or promoting your business through our Shop Local campaign, the Rochelle Chamber gives small businesses unique opportunities to grow. You can read more about our most recent resource below and simply click on the logo to visit the associated website.

With the dedication and support of the Rochelle Chamber, the SBDC is happy to announce that beginning August 17, 2018, they will have regular morning hours at Rochelle City Hall building located at 420 N. 6th Street. We look forward to expanding our reach to entrepreneurs and small business owners in Rochelle and outlying communities.

Through the diligent work of Peggy Friday from the Rochelle Chamber, we now welcome our additional supporting partners: City of Rochelle, Greater Rochelle Economic Development Corporation, Central Bank Illinois, First State Bank, Holcomb Bank and Stillman Bank. We have already begun meeting clients and holding workshops in the area.

The additional support allows us to reach people who may otherwise never see their dream of business ownership become reality. We plan to work with our partners throughout the year on workshops and other events to support the communities. Currently, hours at our Rochelle location are by appointment only by email (sbdc@svcc.edu) or phone (815-835-6244).
