Board & Brush Naperville, IL is Now Open!
We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of Board & Brush Naperville, IL! This is the 4th Board & Brush studio for owners Katie and Mike Ilic. We are so blessed to have their B&b passion and knowledge in our franchise family!
Katie and Mike attended a Board & Brush workshop for their anniversary, and they were immediately hooked! They knew that Board & Brush would be perfect for their family, since Katie’s passion is teaching and Mike is a DIY junkie. After graduating from the University of Illinois, Katie became a high-school math teacher and volleyball coach, but eventually left the classroom behind to stay at home with her daughter when she was born. Mike attended NIU and will always be a Huskie at heart. He was a Senior Manager at Accenture for 18 years before leaving that behind to become a Board & Brush studio owner!
Katie and Mike met on a blind date back in 2011, and the rest was history. Family is their number one priority. Katie has a small, close-knit family and Mike has a huge (and loud!) 100% Croatian family. Some of their favorite things to do are to take their two Yorkie puppies for walks around the neighborhood, spend summer days at the pool, make dinner together, and snuggle up with a good movie. They have three little kids, two dogs, and four B|b studios, so their life is crazy but beautiful. Mike and Katie own the Oswego studio (2018), the St. Charles studio (2019), the Downers Grove studio (2020), and the Naperville studio (2023).
Board & Brush Naperville is located west of the Naperville North High school, in the shopping center with Fresh Thyme Market and Binny’s Beverage Depot; around the corner from the DuPage Children’s Museum and the Amtrack train station.
