After a slight delay due to electric service issues, the new Wendy’s at White Oaks opened today, Sept. 10.
The New Smart 2.0 Design features a slightly smaller footprint than the Wendy’s restaurant on Emily Drive.
“It’s definitely more ecofriendly with a lot more LED lights and those types of energy saving components,” said Karen Tanner, Director of Operations for Primary Aim LLC, owner of area Wendy’s stores.
The dining room is smaller than stores built in the past, but the drive through is expanded and more efficient.
“As years went by, we figured out that people are utilizing the drive through more and people are dining in less,” Tanner said. “It’s an interstate store (just off I-79 at Jerry Dove Drive) and there are a lot of businesses in that area that will likely utilize the drive through.”
