Kane County has been ranked as one of the top 20 counties in the nation in the July 2023 issue of Site Selection magazine.

Kane County came in #14 on the list, along with Cook (#2), DuPage (#9) and Will (#16) Counties. Illinois was the only state with four or more contiguous counties making the list.

This is Site Selection magazine's first ranking of best counties in the U.S. and was based on the total number of economic development projects in each county between January 2022 and March 2023.  Kane County had 52 qualifying projects during that time period.

“This recognition by Site Selection magazine emphasizes why Kane County is a prime destination for new businesses and investments.  This acknowledgment reinforces our status as a welcoming community that values its workforce, growth and geographic attributes," said Kane County Board Chair Corinne Pierog.

As the fifth largest county in Illinois, Kane County has a population of over 515,000 residents and boasts a landscape that combines urban, agriculture, rural and residential.
