Waffle House in Social Circle

Plans submitted to the Social Circle Planning Commisison show a proposed Waffle House for Azalea Court.

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. — The yellow-and-black Waffle House sign is iconic in the South.

It may even burn 24/7 in Social Circle by the end of next year.

The quick-serve restaurant known for serving up hash browns a thousand different ways at all hours of the day and night has passed muster with the Planning Commission and will go before the City Council later this month.

A public hearing for a certificate of appropriateness is on the agenda for the April 20 meeting.

An 1,800-square-foot restaurant would be built within about four months on a vacant lot at 200 Azalea Court.

Pending city approval, Kevin Price would sell 1.09 acres to Norcross-based Waffle House. The restaurant is asking for a Certificate of Appropriateness for the Highway Corridor Overlay.

Waffle House proposes to build a restaurant with the majority of parking facing Bateman Drive, and not along North Cherokee Road as proposed by the district guidelines. A grassy open space would remain south of the building.

Company officials said there are still several details to be worked through, but they hoped to open late in 2022.
