For fans of the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder and Egg McMuffin, there’s good news coming to Trevose. A new McDonald’s is planned adjacent to the Chipolte restaurant at 3580 Horizon Blvd.
On Monday, Bensalem council approved a developer’s agreement and record plan with the property owner. In April, the owners appealed a zoning issue dealing with signage that was later approved.
Council President Joe Knowles told Patch that the McDonald’s development is part of a court settlement that came about when the owners wanted to build a hotel on the site.
“The hotel didn’t work out and then they proposed a strip mall and it was denied,” Knowles said. “We settled on allowing three stand-alone pads instead.”
One of the pads went to Chipolte, the second is going to McDonald’s and the third is slated for a bank, Knowles said. He said he thought this type of development was better for the area than another strip mall.
“We have enough of those on Street Road,” he said.
The McDonald's will be located across the street from another restaurant row that includes Chick Fil A, Starbucks, Bertucci’s, Cracker Barrel and Red Robin. It's also near Wal-mart and the Neshaminy Mall.
