About Us

WE ARE LL

Loyola Limited is Loyola University Chicago's student-run and managed business enterprise. Strictly undergraduate, Loyola Limited is charged with the initiative to create unique experiential learning opportunities for students at Loyola. We achieve this by empowering students to start and manage their own businesses on campus. With this opportunity, students obtain the hands-on business experience, develop vital professional skills, and learn to be confident leaders - all of which prepare them for success after graduation.

Our Vision

To become a student-run enterprise that encompasses a truly entrepreneurial environment, one that continually opens, sustains, and closes businesses - with the ultimate aim of transforming students into talented leaders.

Our Mission

To transform Loyola University Chicago undergraduate students into leaders by providing them with unparalleled experiential learning opportunities in entrepreneurship and small business management, where students are empowered to create, develop, manage, and lead business ventures that benefit the multiple communities they serve.

Company History

Our company launched in February, 2010 when six undergraduate Loyola students had a vision of creating several student-run businesses on campus here at Loyola University Chicago. In July, 2010, The Flats at Loyola Station, our flagship business, was the first Loyola Limited business to open its doors. The Flats at Loyola Station, to this day, is the first and only undergraduate run boutique guesthouse in the United States!

In the six months after the opening of the Flats, the University came to Loyola Limited with a proposal for a second venture that would allow students to manage the University's entire commercial real estate portfolio. The students jumped at the opportunity and a group began a six month internship at a Chicago-renowned real estate investment firm, New Castle Limited. After learning the ins and outs of property management, in July, 2011, Loyola Limited opened its second business, Loyola Property Management (LPM). LPM was a property management firm that oversaw the success of Loyola University's 26 tenants of its retail portfolio; including tenants such as Chic-fil-A, Subway, Hershey's, BMO Harris Bank and many others. The business was managed by students for one year before transferring assets to Loyola.

Around the same time of the launch of Loyola Property Management, another team of LL students were working on a new venture opportunity. The result was the creation of Chainlinks, a non-profit bike rental and repair business whose mission is to educate people about biking in Chicago and promote bike culture at Loyola. The business was the third Loyola Limited business to launch, and opened in August of 2011.

Loyola Limited opened its latest venture, Felice's Roman Style Pizza, in February of 2012. After extensive market research, surveys, and viability tests, the students at LL knew that a Roman style pizzeria providing a "pizza by the weight" concept (traditionally found in Italy would be the perfect business to open near campus. Named after Loyola's John Felice Rome Center, the business celebrates the international student experience by offering a little slice of Rome (and authentic soups and salads) to students and the community here in Chicago.

The ongoing and current success of Loyola Limited is due to its current employees, active alumni, and members of Loyola University Chicago who continue to live, support, and believe in this experiential learning opportunity for Loyola's undergraduate students.
