The Oxford Board of Aldermen approved the final plat of lands for what has previously been identified as the upcoming Oxford Waffle House location on Tuesday.
Oxford Planning Director Ben Requet presented the Request Approval for the amended final plat named “Lot 1, The Summit, Phase I.” The lot is located on Commonwealth Boulevard, off of Highway 7 at Oxford Commons, the site of the Malco movie theater and bowling alley. Requet did not name Waffle House directly, only referring to the use of the site, which the city of Oxford recently annexed as a “new business.”
The approval comes after Senior Associate Planning Director Judy Daniel presented a plat with the same location at the Oct. 14 Planning Commission meeting. Daniel named the “new business” as Waffle House at the Planning Commission meeting.
Daniel said that the purpose of the lot is “to accommodate a new restaurant — Waffle House.”
While many Oxonians have been advocating for an Oxford Waffle House location, including Mayor Robyn Tannehill no construction plans have been released. Waffle House has yet to release an official statement, though the company did bring a food truck to Oxford in September. The truck visited Oxford as part of a tour to different towns that did not currently have a Waffle House.
