Please welcome… Mattson in Chicago!

From Silicon Valley to the Windy City


We’ve Got News!  

We are thrilled to announce our expansion to Chicago! We’ve operated for over four decades in the San Francisco Bay Area, at the forefront of the future of food, enabling startups to global powerhouses to create products that delight consumers and restaurant guests.  In that time, we’ve generated billions of dollars of revenue for our clients with breakthrough new products. Now, we’re bringing this track record of success to the Windy City through the acquisition of the Chicago-based Hyde Park Group Food Innovation.

What This Means for You

With the integration of our Chicago team’s deep expertise, unique methods, and facilities, we’re poised to deliver new and existing innovation services in both locations. From consumer insight and market analysis to chef-lead, trends-driven ideation and concept development to full service R&D and commercialization, our combined capabilities can take clients from insight to market launch.

Chicago Innovation Hub

Our space in the vibrant West Town neighborhood isn’t just a location, it’s a fully functioning innovation and insights facility. This expansion grows our physical footprint, but also enhances our ability to innovate from the ground up in the Midwest, for Chicago clients and beyond. Both Mattson locations will be utilizing our generative AI-driven creative and market insights, including our proprietary ProtoThink™ AI and Food Studio AI.

Looking Forward

We’re excited for what the future holds and are incredibly proud to welcome our Chicago colleagues to the Mattson family. Here’s to new beginnings, business success for our clients, and the continued fun and excitement that comes with inventing the future of food!
