McDonald’s seeks second Huntley site

HUNTLEY – McDonald’s wants to open a second restaurant in Huntley.

Representatives from the fast-food chain recently proposed building a 4,376-square-foot restaurant with a side-by-side drive-through in an outlot in front of the Wal-Mart on Route 47.

Plans show the exterior of the restaurant would feature McDonald’s new prototype design primarily built with “face brick and cultured store with yellow metal canopies and aluminum trellis,” according to village documents. McDonald’s trademarked arches would be on all four sides of the building.

The company also wants a six-foot tall monument sign with an electronic message center in front of the restaurant.

Huntley’s sign ordinance prohibits such signs.

The Village Board agreed in late June to send the project to the Plan Commission to begin the formal development review and approval process.

McDonald’s has more than 34,500 locations in more than 100 countries serving more than 69 million people daily.

The village’s existing McDonald’s, at 10711 Route 47, will remain.
