Update: The Buford Planning and Zoning Board recommended approval Tuesday, Sept. 13. The proposal now goes before the Buford Board of Commissioners on Oct. 3.


Arby’s restaurant may be coming to Lanier Islands Parkway/Ga. 347 in South Hall.

The 2,577-square-foot, fast-food eatery is proposed at 4996 Lanier Islands Parkway, east of Atlanta Highway/Ga. 13 and near the Amazon delivery station, according to a site plan filed with Buford.

Duluth-based CHA Consulting is asking the city to allow for a drive-thru at the restaurant and is scheduled to go before the Buford Planning and Zoning Board Tuesday, Sept. 13. The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at Buford City Hall, 2300 Buford Highway.

Per Buford city code, restaurants must have a special use permit to have a drive-thru.

The restaurant is one of four parcels making up a larger commercial development, according to a letter from CHA Consulting to Buford officials.

Other details about the Arby’s, including when it could open, or the larger development weren’t available as of Monday, Sept. 12.
