Now, it seems as if the famous coffee and donut merchant may be headed back to town. A proposal for a drive-through store at the east end of the retail strip that houses Chipotle, Vision Works, Sport Clips and Jersey Mike's on Route 34 was approved by the Village Board Tuesday night.
The store’s developer, Bud Patel, is proposing a 24-hour drive-through for the location which requires an amendment to the planned unit development in the Prairie Market shopping center. The drive-through would be located at the rear of the building. Village staff recommended approving the drive-through amendment along with another for signage on the store.
Trustees approved both as part of their consent agenda.
Community Development Director Rod Zenner said he was not aware of a time frame of when the location would open. The owner also owns the adjacent Jersey Mike’s shop and has been working to open that store. Jersey Mike's opened today.
