(Updated at 2:25 p.m.) A new and improved Wendy’s is now open on Columbia Pike, and the fast food chain is holding a major giveaway to celebrating the restaurant’s grand opening next weekend.
The Wendy’s at 3431 Columbia Pike shut down for extensive renovations a few months ago, and re-opened for business today (Thursday).
The new location includes an all-new dining area, complete with TVs, music, free Wi-Fi and a faux fireplace. The fireplace in particular seemed to surprise some customers today; at least one person in line pointed at it and said she did not expect a Wendy’s to look so “fancy.”
A company spokesman says the restaurant will hold a “grand re-opening event” next Saturday (Jan. 19).
Wendy’s plans to offer the first 100 customers in line for the event by 10 a.m. free food for a year.
The chain operates three restaurants around the county in total.
