Restaurant celebrates its makeover by giving meals away for a year

By Patricia Beech

Wendy’s Restaurant in West Union has a new look, inside and out. After several months of remodeling, last Friday the restaurant held a Customer Appreciation Day to celebrate the completion of its renovations”.

“The remodel has given the restaurant a more modern look,” said owner, Scott Schmidt. “Our customers have been very receptive to the change.”

The restaurant’s dining area now sports wood and stainless steel furnishings, and the kitchen equipment has been upgraded to energy efficient standards.

Schmidt, a resident of the Stout area, shares ownership of the franchise with his son Justin.

Friday’s customers were all treated to free Smoothies .

“I want my customers to know we’re glad they’re here,” said General Manager Debbie Nichols. “To celebrate the remodel we’re giving away free Frosties, sampling new products, and holding a drawing to give each of our guest a chance to win free meals for a year. I want our customers to know how much we appreciate them.”

Wendy’s is located on the busy stretch of roadway south of West Union, has built a strong customer base since since it opened in October of 1998.

The restaurant was founded in 1969 in Columbus, Ohio by Dave Thomas, who famously named the business after his young daughter, Wendy.

By 1978 Wendy’s set an industry record by successfully opening 1,000 stores in 100 months.

In 2006 Wendy’s responded to public demand for healthier foods and reduced trans fatty acids on its menu by switching to a healthier, nonhydorgenated cooking oil with 0 grams of trans fats.

“We’re proud of our Wendy’s menu,” said Nichols. “Families can eat here and know that they’re getting delicious, healthy food.”
