McHENRY – A developer has filed an application to turn the city’s existing Twisted Burger restaurant into a Starbucks.

The developer wants to complete renovations and construct a drive-thru on the Twisted Burger building, 3405 W. Elm St. Twisted Burger is a quick-service shop that offers specialty burgers, wraps, sandwiches, sides and milkshakes. The restaurant has another location in Grayslake.

Economic development director Doug Martin said the city is working with Twisted Burger to find another location in McHenry.

“They are a viable business, and we’d like to keep them in town,” Martin said.

Seattle-based Starbucks operates another McHenry location about a mile away from Twisted Burger.

“This is something we have been working on for a while, as far as trying to find Starbucks a second location,” Martin said. “They had multiple selections, and we have had multiple suggestions on additional locations. It’s taken a while to find an appropriate location that works with Starbucks and the developer, and this is the one they are pursuing.”

The developer plans to go before McHenry’s Planning and Zoning Commission in March with proposals. The McHenry City Council ultimately would have to approve the plans.

Twisted Burger officials could not be reached for comment.
