According to Doug Caywood of Downtown Design Studio, PLLC, the building was a prototype with a “corner tower concept including stone pillars, copper roofs, brick and stone elements.”
The 2,495-square-foot building accommodates up to 46 guests in the newly designed dining area.
A drive-thru will take care of approximately 70 percent of the hungry guests who will visit the new Wendy’s.
Inside the working environment, associates will be utilizing customized equipment such as bun warmers, fry stations, grills and fountain dispensers.
A condiment bar provides a separation from the counter/waiting area and dining room.
The new location and design is a first for Cleveland and one of few utilized in Tennessee and Georgia.
This was the second Wendy’s Restaurant opened in Bradley County by Springfield Investments.
Springfield Investments is a family owned business formed in 1996, according to Sandy Abassi.
“We currently own and operate 17 Wendy’s locations throughout East Tennessee, Northwest Georgia, and Alabama. We employ approximately 400 people,” Abassi said.
“Currently we are in search of additional locations to expand our company. Springfield Investments is very excited to be here in this new location and looking forward to serving the Cleveland community and getting to know our neighbors better,” Abassi added.
Abassi also said plans for a Wendy’s in northwest Bradley County are also under way.
The group is researching property in the Charleston area, Abbasi said.
“Downtown Design Studio feels privileged to work with the corporate offices of Wendy’s and Springfield Investments on this new prototype store which was built in and will serve the residents of south Cleveland and others,” Caywood said.
