Paul McKenna, Bite Nite Co-Chair + Owner of Starship Restaurant & Catering says:
“As a long time business owner, I have realized the great potential the chambers of Forest Park and Oak Park-River Forest offer to small businesses by providing great opportunities like Bite Nite to work together to drive patrons to our businesses and communities.”
"We are excited to sponsor Bite Nite for the second year in a row. This event is so loved by not only us, but the entire Oak Park community. The food and atmosphere of the event are a great way to start the new year. We’re honored to be a part of such a close-knit community and have such a strong relationship with the Chamber."
Christine Barnard, Bite Nite Co-Chair + Chief Advisor of What Now Advisors says:
