CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—March 6, 2018

Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined representatives from Aspen Dental Management to announce the company is locating a new headquarters in Chicago. The company intends to employ approximately 250 people. The announcement comes as Site Selection Magazine has named Chicago as the top metro area in the nation for corporate relocation and investment for the fifth consecutive year.

At the announcement, Mayor Emanuel said, “The reasons Chicago has led the nation in corporate investment for five consecutive years are the same reasons Aspen Dental Management build a future here. Chicago’s talent, transportation, transparency, technology and training give companies of any size the tools they need to thrive. And when companies thrive in Chicago it creates jobs that reach every part of the city.”

ADMI CEO, Bob Fontana added, “We’re incredibly excited about putting down roots in Chicago’s West Loop. As we consider our future business growth, company culture and recruitment efforts, we see Chicago and its central location as key to realizing those opportunities. In turn, we have much to offer the Chicago community and are eager to build relationships and become an integral player in Chicago’s vibrant business community. This ‘home base’ in the Midwest will allow us to truly embrace our nationwide footprint.”

Founded in Syracuse, NY by current CEO, Fontana, ADMI offers a patient-centric model of healthcare through its Aspen Dental and Five Star Urgent care brands so that healthcare professionals can focus on giving care rather than administrative tasks.

Support provided by ADMI includes services and recommendations related to finding the right locations, leasing, acquiring equipment, accounting and marketing. Today ADMI supports more than 660 Aspen Dental-branded practices in 36 states, with another 70 locations planned this year; as well as 14 Five Star Urgent Care locations with 15 more scheduled to open in 2018.
