If you can’t go very far without stopping for a Starbucks fix then you will like what a Highland Park property owner has in mind for a York Boulevard burger stand.
The owner of the Classic Burger property on the eastern edge of York Boulevard near Figueroa Street is scheduled to appear before the Highland Park neighborhood council on May 16 to discuss his plans to open a drive-thru Starbucks at that location, reports Mt. Washington-Highland Park Patch. Starbucks already operates a drive-thru outlet only about two miles away on the western end of York Boulevard in Glassell Park, meaning York Boulevard would be bookended by Frappuccinos if the chain agreed to opened a store at the Classic Burger location.
The property owner told Patch that no deal has been reached to lease the space to Starbucks, which would be the first in Highland Park, but he is seeking city approval to operate drive-thru on the property.
