A national deli chain with a handful of nearby locations is coming to Galesburg in the development Mike Martin is working on just off of North Seminary Street.
McAlister’s Deli made their intentions of opening a 3,900 square-foot restaurant known in documents submitted to the Galesburg Planning and Zoning Commission.
McAlister’s was asking for a review of their facility to allow them to have a drive-thru.
Already the chain based in Atlanta, Georgia has locations in Macomb and Peoria.
City Council in 2010 mandated that all drive-through facilities must be reviewed by the Commission.
McAlister’s serves an assortment of sandwiches, soups, salads, and baked potatoes.
The commission documents show that they plan on building on an empty lot North of Aldi Grocery Store.
The Planning and Zoning Commission was also set to hear a zoning ordinance amendment to allow Cottage Hospital to rent out space in the ground floor of their professional office building, formerly Delino’s.
The potential lessee is Edward Jones Financial.
