A new Starbucks with a drive-through and Schaumburg's first Which Wich restaurant are expected to open in the same shared building this fall on the former site of Egg Basket in an outlot of the National Plaza Shopping Center at 395 S. Barrington Road.

Schaumburg trustees Tuesday approved the special-use permit allowing the Egg Basket building to be razed and replaced with a new 3,363-foot building to house the two new businesses.

While there are already several other Starbucks coffee shops in Schaumburg, Which Wich is a relatively new concept in the Chicago area.

Described as a fast casual restaurant serving sandwiches, lunch bowls and wraps, its only four Illinois locations are in Chicago, Hoffman Estates, Oakbrook Terrace and Plainfield.

Representatives of Oak Brook-based property owner Inland Real Estate said they knew Starbucks was eager to open in the new building as soon as possible this fall. While Inland didn't have as firm a time commitment from Which Wich, officials said its opening would certainly be no earlier than Starbucks'.

With the Starbucks drive-through lane wrapping around the north, west and south sides of the building, an outdoor seating area is planned at the southeast corner. This seating area will be separated from the rest of the property by a fence and landscaping.

On Monday afternoon, an existing Schaumburg Starbucks at 181 N. Barrington Road was damaged by a Chevy Malibu crashing through its front window.

The 71-year-old Streamwood woman who was driving had accidentally hit the accelerator, according to Schaumburg police.

A 34-year-old Winthrop Harbor man and 32-year-old Park Ridge woman inside the Starbucks were taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The driver was shaken up by the crash but uninjured.

No tickets were issued for the accident on private property. The Starbucks remains closed while repairs are being made.
