Opening a New Business?

The Village of Mundelein Welcomes You!

STEP 1

Verify with the Village if your business address/location is currently zoned for your intended business use. Contact Community Development: 847-949-3282.

STEP 2

Will your business be selling any of the following:

  • Liquor
  • Tobacco
  • Secondhand Goods

Will your business include any of the following:

  • Pawn Brokering
  • Mobile Food Truck
  • Video Gaming Terminals

Contact the Village’s Licensing Coordinator: 847-949-3285

STEP 3

Will the business location/address undergo modifications - physical changes to the building interior, exterior or property (including signage)?

If so, you would need to submit a Permit Application and provide plans for review. Businesses without modifications still require proper licenses and an approved Certificate of Occupancy.

Contact the Building Department 847-949-3283

STEP 4

Once all Licenses have been approved and issued, the business has passed all inspections and a certificate of occupancy has been issued by the Village - it’s time to OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
