McCombie Chooses Saporito’s Pizza for First Business Highlight


House Minority Leader Tony McCombie spent time honoring a local business this month through her new program launched earlier this year to help promote the great business community in northwest Illinois.

This month, Leader McCombie visited Saporito’s Pizza as her first local business highlight and presented them with a special certificate of recognition. The restaurant is known as a “taste Italy in downtown Lena,” that serves up homemade pizza’s pastas and various signature dishes. McCombie was encouraged to highlight Saporito’s this month based on a constituent’s referral and her craving for pizza!

“This is a great local spot with a fantastic menu and even better service—I am pleased that folks around the 89th are helping me support our local economy with our business spotlight outreach,” said McCombie.

This is an ongoing effort for McCombie, and she is continuing her call for constituents across the 89th District to suggest local businesses that deserve some extra recognition. To gauge feedback, Leader McCombie has created an online form where residents can nominate a business of their choosing to be recognized.
