A restaurant developer is planning to build a new Burger King in Butler Township.
The Butler Township Planning Commission unanimously approved the plans during a meeting Tuesday. PEC II Management will own the store. The company also owns the Burger King on Pittsburgh Road in Butler Township and last month, received approval to build another store at the South Pike Plaza in Buffalo Township.
The restaurant will be built on New Castle Road. Two pieces of property between an existing KFC and Pizza Plus will be combined to allow for a 3,200-square foot structure. Those properties were formerly the site of a car wash and a Quiznos.
The restaurant will have a drive-thru with two windows able to accommodate seven to eight vehicles. The facility will also have about 30 parking spaces to allow for eat-in customers.
An additional retaining wall is expected to be built and extensive landscaping will be added to the property. PennDOT has given approval that would allow for entrance and exit to and from the restaurant in either direction onto New Castle Road.
The existing Burger King in Butler Township on Pittsburgh Road will remain open.
Construction on the new Burger King is expected to begin this fall.
