Local Businesses

West Dundee is home to a robust collection of businesses from a variety of sectors, including retail, dining, professional, light industrial and more.


The Village of West Dundee takes great pride in our local businesses. In 2021, the Business Community Profiles series was launched to individually celebrate locally owned businesses in our community. These are shared below.

The Half Full Nest Vintage Market

205 W Main Street
"All things lovely for the nest and beyond"


98 W Main Street
"A unique locally sourced farm-to-table dining experience where the food is always fresh and you leave feeling like family"


The below Business Directory was introduced several years ago as a platform for local business owners to present their desired content to the community within a central online directory. This interface has been underutilized and will be retired in conjunction with an overhaul of this website, anticipated during the 2021-22 fiscal year.

Picking up a Permit?

Permits are issued by the Community Development Department, located in the fire station at 100 Carrington Drive (Public Safety Center #2).

PSC #2 is on the southwest corner of Route 72 and Carrington Drive (which lines up with Sleepy Hollow Rd heading north). It is a large brick building with a clock tower. Park in the front of the building, enter at the double doors, and you will be greeted at the service window just inside the lobby.

General Maintenance Code Enforcement

Based on direction from the Village Board and a focus on general aesthetics of the neighborhoods of West Dundee, the Village will be placing increased attention a number of common property maintenance code violations.

The areas of code enforcement that will be focused on include:

• Vehicles parked in driveways should not block the sidewalk, particularly during daylight hours, in order to promote a pedestrian-friendly environment throughout the Village.

• Refuse containers should not be placed curbside any earlier than the evening prior to collection. Typically, this is Thursday evening. During the week of the 6 major holidays (New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day), collection is moved to Saturday, in which case refuse containers should not be placed earlier than Friday evening.

• Garbage cans should not be stored along the front (street side) of your home, but rather along the side or in the rear yard.

• Grass and weeds within your individual lot should be properly maintained, and do not become overgrown or unsightly. These would include any planting beds, landscape areas or lawns.

• Outdoor fire pits must located in the rear yard and at least 20’ away from any structure or combustible material. No garbage or yard waste is permitted to be burned.

• RVs, boats and trailers may not be stored in any driveway for longer than 48 hours.
