Construction on the long-awaited downtown Decatur Waffle House – first announced here back in April 2014 – is about to begin.
DM has confirmed with Asst. City Manager Lyn Menne that construction on the renovation of the former Sammiches n’ Stuff/Little Shop space at 515 North McDonough will begin in the next two weeks.
We have also confirmed that Waffle House will remove the false front of the building as part of the renovation and will attempt restore the original brick to its former glory if its still in good shape– similar to the rehabilitation done on the exterior of the Jeni’s Ice Cream space a couple of years ago.
Ms. Menne notes “They are not used to rehabbing and are going out on a limb to meet our request and we appreciate that effort.”
Like many other Waffle House locations around the country, the Decatur location will be open 24 hours.
