Harold’s Chicken Shack, the South Side favorite since 1950, hopes to open on Howard Street in Evanston by the end of February, DNAInfo.com reports.
Franchisee Kelly Roberts has applied for a permit to open at 337 Howard St., on the border of Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood and close to the the Howard L station.
“It’s a very busy location [with] a lot of foot traffic — It’ll be great,” Roberts told DNAInfo.com.
Evanston’s zoning board of appeals on Dec. 17 recommended the city council approve the permit for the restaurant, city spokesman Martin Travis said. The application could be approved by Jan. 27, he said.
