Wendy's on Turnersburg Highway to reopen in May
BY HALEY JONES
The Wendy’s restaurant chain is reinventing itself.
The location at 159 Turnersburg Highway is in the process of getting a major facelift. Construction is already under way.
When the work is completed, the restaurant will have a more updated look with an exterior design that features glass walls to create “an open, bright dining room.” The dining area will have a variety of seating options, including lounge chairs and booths, along with a Wi-Fi bar, flat-screen TVs, and a fireplace.
Customers can expect to see a new ordering process with digital menu boards and a Coca-Cola Freestyle self-service soda machine.
This change will also include new food innovations and new packaging.
Emil Brolick, The Wendy's Co. President & CEO, describes the updated restaurant as “as A Cut Above."
Since 1977, when the first Wendy’s was opened in Boone, Tar Heel Capital Corporation has led the charge for the Wendy Company brand throughout North Carolina and South Carolina. Presently, there are 72 restaurants located in the Carolinas area.
The Wendy’s on Turnersburg Highway will be the 29th location to reopen with this new design.
“We feel that our new Wendy’s will really compliment the improvements made with all of the development in the area around us,” says Tad Dolbier, president of Tar Heel Capital Corporation. “Our remodeled restaurant on Broad Street has been extremely well-received and we are excited to bring the latest design to Turnersburg Highway as well.”
The restaurant is closed for the renovations, but is scheduled to reopen in early May.
