GREENFIELD — Waffle House Inc. may finally have a place to call home in Greenfield – again – depending on whether the Greenfield City Council says yes during its next meeting on Jan. 23.

First, the company’s plan to locate on the lot just south of Big O Tires on North State Street must gain final approval from the Greenfield Planning Commission on Monday night.

According to city zoning administrator Joanie Fitzwater, the company has complied with all city requests in order to locate on the site, and the plan commission should OK it on Monday.

The company once had a restaurant here on North State Street near McClarnon Drive.

Five years ago, the company attempted to re-enter the market. It gained plan commission and zoning board approval to locate a new restaurant at the Interstate 70 interchange, but the city council vetoed it, saying the location was inappropriate.

Butch Bauer, Waffle House Inc. vice president and real estate representative, spent the latter part of 2012 seeking approval from Greenfield’s planning and zoning officials to locate on the property in the 1700 block of North State Street.
