Truett’s Luau restaurant gets its drive-thru, kiosk
The final approval needed for the new Truett’s Luau restaurant at the Waterfall commercial center at Grady Avenue and Ga. Highway 54 West came at the March 26 meeting of the Fayetteville Planning and Zoning Commission.
The commission by unanimous vote approved the kiosk that will be positioned near the restaurant’s front door and the drive-thru configuration that will lead to the kiosk. The two-lane drive-thru will accommodate approximately 17 vehicles.
The kiosk of approximately 10 feet by 14 feet will be located near the edge of the sidewalk and will feature a covered canopy for vehicles to drive under when picking up orders. Food orders will arrive at the kiosk by way of an overhead conveyor belt, project representatives said.
The conveyor design is not new to Chick-fil-A or company owner Truett Cathy and is currently being used in the company’s restaurants in locations in north metro Atlanta, said Gary Gettis.
The Fayetteville City Council recently approved a rezoning request for the building housing the new restaurant and the planning commission had previously approved the development plans.
The restaurant is expected to open in the fall and will feature both inside and outside dining.
“The Waterfall center demonstrates Truett Cathy’s desire to make the center a destination and to supply the distinction that will make it a showplace,” Gettis said previously.
The unique waterfall that sits at the intersection of Hwy. 54 and Grady Avenue made its official debut on March 14 when it became operational as Cathy, his family and a large number of guests looked on during the center’s grand opening.
