South Hall has a new Starbucks.
The coffee shop has opened at 4942 Bristol Industrial Way, off Lanier Islands Parkway/Ga. 347, in Buford.
The Starbucks, next to Wendy’s restaurant, has a drive-through, plus indoor and outdoor seating.
Company officials couldn’t be reached for comment.
The restaurant occupies a building once used by Shoney’s On the Go restaurant and it sits along a long stretch of restaurants, gas stations and other retail shops between Atlanta Highway/Ga. 13 and Interstate 985.
Dunkin Donuts had applied for a permit allowing for a drive-through at nearby 4915 Lanier Islands Parkway. In June, the applicant asked the city to put off the request “because the restaurant is on hold at this location for now,” Buford Planning Director Kim Wolfe said.
