Derry drive-through coffee shop gets green light to open
The free-standing operation will be built on the former Pinkerton Tavern site at 13 Manchester Road, according to planning officials.
Planning Board members approved the site plan during a July 16 meeting.
“They got the site plan approval, so they’re all set to go,” said Planning Director George Sioras.
Aroma Joe’s is a franchise operation that began on the Seacoast around 2000; the nearest shop is in Hampton.
The Derry location will focus on drive-thru service, with walk-up service also available, company representatives said.
Following a traffic study, a dual exit lane was incorporated into the design, Stack said. The drive thru will provide space for seven to eight vehicles to line up, he said.
