J.C. Restoration, Inc. (JCR) has earned a spot on Crain’s 2021 list of Chicago’s biggest minority-owned businesses, ranking at number 25, based on 2020 revenue.
Headquartered in Rolling Meadows, IL and a 100% Hispanic/Latino-owned company, J.C. Restoration employs over 100 people and experienced 18.2% revenue growth from 2019 to 2020. JCR is proud to be a certified minority business enterprise (MBE) and rank on this list, after starting out in 1982 with just a garage full of equipment, a handful of hardworking laborers, and raw determination.
“It is a true honor to be ranked among Crain’s 2021 list of Chicago’s biggest minority-owned businesses, especially after a very difficult 2020 for many companies. We work very hard to achieve growth every single year, and this is wonderful validation for not only our entire staff, but for our Hispanic/Latino ownership and my family legacy,” President Warner Cruz stated. “J.C. Restoration works very hard to do right by our customers in the area of disaster restoration. To be recognized here at home in Chicago is very rewarding.”
