A quick serve restaurant is coming to the Big T Mini Mart.

The planning commission voted to allow Big T Mini Mart to incorporate this restaurant into their existing space on Main Street. The restaurant would take up 1,156 square feet of the 3,224 square foot space, which currently runs entirely as a convenience story, according to a staff report from Alhambra’s Department of Community Development.

Forty-five feet of the store area would become a small seating area and would serve chicken wings, fries and other fast foods. Seventy-five feet of the restaurant’s storage space would be converted into a small kitchen and hold a freezer, two fryers, a rice cooker, a food warmer, an oven and two prep tables.

Last year, the planning commission granted Big T Mini Mart a permit to sell packaged beer and wine to customers. The convenience store also sells snacks, soft drinks and cigarettes.

No additional parking would be needed for the new restaurant.
