Sandwich is centrally located just 60 miles west of Chicago and is bisected by Illinois Route 34, which provides a direct link east to the Chicagoland area. In addition, I-80, a highway that stretches cross-country from the Atlantic to the Pacific, sits approximately 20 miles south of Sandwich. This ideal location is among the many assets Sandwich businesses are attracted to. Among many other significant facets of community life, the diverse and vibrant base of businesses also enjoy the area’s excellent opportunities for education, access to leading healthcare facilities, rich recreational spaces and many houses of worship.

Economic and community development keeps growing in Sandwich. The Sandwich Industrial Park continues to expand, and the addition of the 17,000-square-foot Church Street Business Center in 2007 and 9,200-plus square-foot Sandwich Commons Strip Center fueled interest in relocation and expansion. Also, in late 2007, the Valley West Medical Office Building (the largest structure in town) was completed, followed by a major hospital expansion in 2008—two projects that have enhanced the local medical community.One of the newest developments in Sandwich is the Timber Creek Convention Center, which opened in the March of 2008. The Convention Center offers approximately 28,000 square feet of space ideal for a variety of events, both large and small. Connected to the center is the new 100-room Best Western Timber Creek Inn & Suites, while just next door construction is continuing on the upcoming Waves of Fun Indoor Water Park, a 65,000-square foot, five-story aquatic complex.

Growth and prosperity in the business community of Sandwich IL is imminent, with a number of new additions and the support of such organizations as the Sandwich Chamber of Commerce, the Sandwich Economic Development Corporation and the City of Sandwich. These entities work together to retain and attract new business to Sandwich, facilitate well-planned community and economic development and enhance the overall quality of life available here.
