Promoting Your Business - Sidewalk Signs
Through the City's Chicago ChiBiz Strong Initiative, businesses can now display sidewalk signs in front of their establishments after applying for and receiving an approved permit. The permit allows one sign per address and comes with a decal to display on the sign.  
Sidewalk cafes can operate year-round, giving the streetscape a vibrant and inviting look. With a sidewalk cafe permit application, Brick-and-mortar retail food establishments can extend onto the sidewalk directly in front of or adjacent to their business.
