MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – GMX Real Estate Group has applied for permission from the City of Marshfield to build a new fast food restaurant called “Slim Chickens” on the land just north of Starbucks. The fast-casual restaurant chain specializes in chicken fillets, wings, sandwiches, salads, wraps, chicken and waffles, and other items.
The two parcels in question are currently vacant and zoned for mixed community use currently. According to City of Marshfield documents, GMX is interested in purchasing the parcels and developing them as a commercial use and retention pond. As the applicant is proposing an outdoor patio with a driveway crossing the property lines, a conditional use permit is required for the development. They would build a freestanding restaurant and outdoor patio with drive-thru and self-contained parking and establish cross-access with Starbucks to the south.
The applicants have had discussions with City staff over the past several months and have been working on site plans. The City Development Review Team (DRT) met with the applicants on July 27, 2022. The City Plan Commission will discuss the application in more detail at the Tuesday (September 20) meeting.
