A new fast-food restaurant is in the works for downtown Blythewood. The town’s Board of Architectural Review will vote Tuesday evening on a request to build a Taco Bell restaurant in the 200 block of Blythewood Road.
According to town documents, the proposed restaurant owner is the Flynn Restaurant Group based in Independence, Ohio. The company’s website shows it owns 2,400 other restaurants in 44 states, including Taco Bell, Applebee’s, Panera, Arby’s, Pizza Hut and Wendy’s restaurants. A call to the company for additional information was not returned. The project’s builder is National Restaurant Designers based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The project must get a thumbs-up from the BAR on the appropriateness of the building plans because it would be located in the town center district, according to Kirk Wilson, Blythewood’s building and zoning analyst.
