Cinnaholic Bakery wants to open north of Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg
Stores in Schaumburg's Woodfield Village Green Shopping Center should expect more foot traffic from their numerous restaurant neighbors if the newly proposed Cinnaholic Bakery receives a special-use permit from the village in August.
If approved, the bakery and restaurant proposed for the 1,136-square-foot storefront at 1404 E. Golf Road would be the 11th eatery in the shopping center at the northeast corner of Golf and Meacham roads, just north of Woodfield Mall.
Though the eateries occupy less than 10 percent as much space as the shopping center's retailers, they have a drawing power all the tenants can benefit from, Schaumburg Economic Development Director Matt Frank said.
"I think they are certainly drivers for traffic," he added. "They're important to attract additional retailers to the center."
Cinnaholic Bakery will seek the recommendation of the village's zoning board of appeals on Wednesday and formal approval of a special-use permit from the village board on Aug. 13.
The bakery plans to serve coffee and specialize in vegan, plant-based cinnamon rolls and desserts. While much of its business is expected to be carry-out, there also will be three small tables with two seats each inside.
If Cinnaholic Bakery is approved, Woodfield Village Green will have 52,499 square feet of restaurant space and 639,470 square feet of retail space by the end of the year.
Existing restaurants in the shopping center include Bonchon, Cafe Zupas, Kuma's Corner, Qdoba, California Pizza Kitchen, Starbucks, Subway, Westwood Tavern and Wildberry Pancakes & Cafe.
There also will be a Barnes & Noble Cafe when the book store around it relocates from its longtime home at 590 E. Golf Road in the Woodfield Plaza Shopping Center later this year.
