How to Support Black-Owned Businesses in Chicago in 2022


At Olive Well, supporting the community isn't just about talking each other up on social media or writing a one-off interview for our Map Project. We strongly believe in putting money back into the city we love so much. This Black History Month, Compass Chicagoland helped us prepare a list of some incredible Black-owned businesses for you to support and patronize all year long. We are excited to support these local entrepreneurs and we hope you are too!


The list is broken up by South, West, North, and Downtown neighborhoods, and then sub-divided into categories like food, drink, self-care, wellness, and clothing.


Next time you're looking for a good date night, or you just need to rejuvenate after a long week at work, we encourage you to visit these fabulous businesses below...
