Office- Retail “Incubator”

Mahomet is a great place to start or expand a business! Sangamon on Main is a renovated elementary at the intersection of Illinois Route 47 and Main Street. The flexible office and retail suites are designed to support start ups and the cooperative environment is outstanding.

Build to Suit Opportunities

Vanilla box space or buildable commercial lots from .25 – 8 acres are abundant throughout town for small and large businesses! Mahomet zoning is flexible and adaptive. The Village values its role in facilitating communication and relationships between businesses, brokers, landowners and contractors to support commercial enterprises.

Loyal Local Customers

The growing population in 61853 and the west side of Champaign enjoys shopping and staying in Mahomet despite the convenience of nearby Champaign-Urbana.

Cooperative and Supportive

A strong Chamber of Commerce and a general cooperative and supportive culture of business owners is a great foundation for any start-up or expanding business.




“Thanks to the Village of Mahomet for working with us to get our wine and paint party business, Paint Like Me, established in Mahomet. They were very responsive and willing to work with us. They worked with us to get a BYOB license established which was extremely critical to our business. We had an idea and just approached the Village with it and they were very willing to work with us.”
