Who doesn't need a chocolate-dipped, double-twist vanilla at 11 p.m. after a long hard day of Zoom meetings?
Members of the Northville Township Planning Commission heard plans for a new Dairy Queen on Five Mile Road which would offer drive through service until 11 p.m. during the summer months and from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. during cooler months. While those hours concerned some members of the commission, worried about the impact on nearby residential areas, commissioners approved the plan on a 4-2 vote with hours limited to 10:30 p.m.
The new location at 40570 Five Road includes a building next to George's 5 Barrel Liquor & Market and would include inside seating, tables and chairs outside and the drive through window.
Todd Haidous who proposed the plan to the commissioners the hours were important to the business as was the drive-through window especially during the COVID safety restrictions. Haidous also operates Dairy Queen locations in Dearborn, Hillsdale, Coldwater and Angola, Indiana.
