About Us

The Chicago Halal Festival is organized, run, and marketed by LiveCheapr Inc.  LiveCheapr was established in 2010 by two recent college grads, Salman Jahedi and Eugene Spivak, who have been entrepreneurs at heart since the day they were born.  LiveCheapr launched a website that would help local businesses increase exposure and bring new customers through the door.  This was achieved by working closely with local businesses to establish a unique and attractive promotion for their goods and/or services that would be marketed through LiveCheapr’s website.

After working closely with and listening to many local businesses Salman and Eugene came to realize that these same businesses could use assistance in other ways that were negatively impacting their profitability and exposure.  In response, they began assisting many of these small businesses with website design, SEO exposure, and more.  From there LiveCheapr naturally evolved into creating and hosting small events that the founders were very passionate about ranging from group activities to music shows.  LiveCheapr remains dedicated to organizing and marketing events that the founders are passionate about — including Chicago’s  Halal Festival.  We are proud to be the first to introduce such a festival in this great city of Chicago that has always been our home!
