Hungry meat-lovers will be glad to know a brand new Wendy’s will open on Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country as soon as next month. The restaurant is scheduled for a May 1 opening, but it depends on construction lag times and weather.
It generally takes about 120 days to build a Wendy’s restaurant from the time they break ground, says Shane Gray, vice president of marketing for Cotti Foods, the company that operates 100 Wendy’s restaurants nationwide including all of the Santa Clarita locations.
“This brand new, state-of-the-art Wendy’s will come with free Wi-Fi, mobile ordering and with all the comfort and convenience of a brand new Wendy’s restaurant,” Gray said. “Santa Clarita has been a great city to work with in developing Wendy’s restaurants. … We are excited to be part of the Canyon Country community.”
The company estimates it will create 40-50 new jobs locally with the opening of the Canyon Country Wendy’s.
“Wendy’s continues to serve up fresh, tasty hamburgers – never frozen – always fresh beef,” Gray added. “It’s (based on) the founding principles of the Wendy’s founder, Dave Thomas, who coined the phrase ‘quality is our recipe.’”
The new Wendy’s will be located at 19018 Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country.
