The Little Caesars location on Wisconsin Avenue in Grafton will add a drive-up window for added convenience.
The proposed change, which was approved at the Plan Commission meeting on Tuesday, March 28, call for the drive-up window to be placed on the south side of the building.
According to Jessica Wolff, director of planning and development for the village of Grafton, conversations with the Little Caesars franchise began late last year, with a definitive plan developed last month. Wolff noted that talks between the village and the franchise, a member of the Chamber of Commerce, were amicable.
As far as how the drive-up window would impact traffic on Wisconsin Avenue, the request form laid out the plans as an entrance-only drive to reduce vehicle and pedestrian conflicts with vehicles exiting the drive-up window lane and entering the site.
"Drivers will enter the Little Caesars and circle a curbed island to get to the window before returning south on Wisconsin Avenue," said Wolff. "We worked with the franchise to ensure that the changes would not disrupt the flow of traffic."
Matt Schroeder, manager of the Little Caesars location, noted that the drive-up window is an addition that is being implemented by Little Caesars across the country.
"We believe that the window will help us better serve pizza and provide more convenience for customers in Grafton," said Schroeder.
Construction is expected to begin in late April and be completed by May.
