Tinley Park Promotes Ranking on Business Cards

BusinessWeek Magazine ranked the town of Tinley Park the best place to raise children in its most recent edition and business members of the community didn’t waste any time letting everyone know about their town. Jim Fuentes, an insurance business owner, quickly order 3,000 business cards stating the towns distinction the day that he heard the good news.

BusinessWeek considered over 800 communities in the US and compared their school test scores, affordability, job opportunities and crime rate. The article selected the small town outside of Chicago over all the other’s chosen to compare. With a population of 58,000, the small town has been focused on renovating its historic downtown centered around the Tinley Park Rock Island train station.

The city hopes to promote the ranking beyond business owner’s business cards. Placing signs in city parks, car stickers, stationary, and newspaper ads are all being considered.
