Canyon Country has the latest Wendy’s in the area. Where Mi Ranchito was previously located there now sits a new, state-of-the-art fast food restaurant.
“Dave Thomas, the Wendy’s founder, built the restaurant on quality,” said Shane Gray, vice president of marketing for Cotti Foods, which owns 101 Wendy’s locations. “That’s why we don’t use frozen beef; it’s all fresh.”
The Canyon Country Wendy’s is the fifth in Santa Clarita, with indoor seating and Wi-Fi capability. “Santa Clarita has been a great city to work. … We are excited to be part of the Canyon Country community,” Gray said.
The company created 45 new jobs and is committed to investing in local charity work. “We hold community fundraisers at all our locations,” Gray said. “Any charity can come to us and we give 10 percent of receipts to them when they host an event at Wendy’s.”
For the restaurant’s grand opening, they are offering free Jr. Frostys on May 10-11.
“We want to make sure every customer leaves with a smile,” Gray said.
The new Wendy’s is located at 19018 Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country. It is open 9 a.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday; and 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights.
