Waffle House considered for Sevierville
When the Sevierville Regional Planning Commission meets today, it will consider the siting of a Waffle House on Winfield Dunn Parkway.
The restaurant would be in the lot just south of the Murphy Express gas station, said Interim Planning Director Judi Forkner.
"A half-acre site is what they'll be subdividing," Forkner said. "As far as I know, it's their normal retail outlet. The site plan says 38 seats."
There are many pancake restaurants in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, but no Waffle House. There is a Waffle House in Seymour.
Norcross, Ga.-based Waffle House was founded in 1955. The company operates more than 1,500 restaurants.
The planning commission meets at 5 p.m. today in the Sevierville Civic Center.
In other business, the commission will consider:
- A request from the city for a downtown parking lot on Bruce Street
- A letter of credit for Sterline Spring Resort
- Changing a street name in Smith-Thomas Technology Park
