We're expanding in the Chicago Area

Honest-1 is in the top 3% of emerging franchises and in the top 1% for the Franchise Satisfaction Awards


Areas of High Development include:

  • Chicago
  • Cook Lake
  • DuPage
  • McHenry
  • Kane 

Territory includes the City of Chicago and the five counties of Northeast Illinois: Cook, Lake, DuPage, McHenry and Kane. The territory was opened in September 2014 when the regional developers, Tim and Brad, completed their three weeks of training. The first store in the market opened on June 30, 2015, in Aurora. The five year plan is to open at least 25 stores – making this a ground floor opportunity for franchisees interested in owning multiple locations.

Starting with the belief that the goal is to have fun and make money, the Chicago Regional Developers bring a wide range of expertise and complementary skill sets to ensure their franchisees are highly successful.

Brad Neuman has a managing broker’s real estate license, an MBA from the University of Chicago, and a CPA with more than 40 years of experience in strategy, systems, finance and planning. Brad served as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Homart Development for ten years before selling the company, what was then the largest developer of regional malls. Neuman has served on several philanthropic boards; led pro-bono projects for the Civic Consulting Alliance serving the City of Chicago and has done management consulting for companies of all sizes.
