DENVILLE, NJ – The Denville Zoning Board of Adjustment held a special meeting on April 24 for a public hearing of an Application for Development filed by the QuickChek Corporation on January 16, 2019. Undeveloped land at the corner of Franklin Road and Route 10 West, adjacent to the jug-handle turn, will become Denville’s first QuickChek convenience store if the plans and variances are approved.
The proposed QuickChek would be a combination convenience store and gas station that would operate 24/7. The establishment would be 5,670 square feet on approximately 18 acres and would contain eight fuel stations, two low-flow diesel dispensers, indoor and outdoor seating, 55 parking spaces, and a no-fee ATM.
There would be an access driveway on Route 10 just beyond the jug-handle entrance onto Route 10. A secondary driveway on Franklin Road would create a four-way intersection with the Denville Commons driveway.
During his testimony at the public hearing, QuickChek Senior Real Estate Manager Jeffrey Albanese stated that the store expects to hire 35-45 full-time and part-time employees. A manager would always be onsite, according to Albanese, who has been with the family-owned business for 23 years.
Albanese was one of three witnesses to testify at the hearing. The Zoning Board of Adjustment has scheduled another public hearing for July 10 at 7 p.m. to receive testimony from the remaining witnesses.
If ultimately approved, Denville’s QuickChek would join four others within a five-mile radius: Rockaway, Morris Plains, Hanover and Parsippany.
