ABINGDON, Va. — Pal’s Sudden Service is on its way to Abingdon, Virginia, after receiving approval by the town’s planning commission to construct a drive-thru restaurant at The Meadows.
“We love the people of Abingdon and are excited about the possibility to serve customers there,” Pal’s CEO Thom Crosby said in a release. “We have a few more items to address toward finalization of our plans for an Abingdon location, but I’m hopeful that those can be resolved so that construction can begin.”
Jason Boswell, the town’s director of planning, said Pal’s proposed site plan was approved by the planning commission as submitted.
“Pal’s next step in the process will be to submit the site plan to include setback requirements, erosion and sediment control plan, registered design professional drawings of the proposed structure, along with any required permits, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, etc.,” Boswell said.
This Pal’s location would mark the first Pal’s in Abingdon. Once open, the Abingdon location could create about 60 new jobs for the town and surrounding area, according to Pal’s. Pal’s Sudden Service already has several locations throughout Northeast Tennessee and drive-thrus in Gate City, Bristol, Lebanon and Norton, Virginia.
