Excerpts:

The old Sunbeam factory on the Far West Side of Chicago is buzzing by 5 a.m.

Urban Till employees are harvesting, packaging and getting produce ready to ship to more than 100 local restaurants so it can be on diners’ plates later that day.

Urban Till now has more than 200 clients in the Chicago area, including Three Aces Italian tavern in University Village and Munch, an Oak Park vegetarian restaurant.

The United Arab Emirates is interested in this use, and Urban Till is also building a 118,000-square-foot facility in Las Vegas and negotiating to do an indoor vertical orchard in San Bernardino, Calif.
