The Original Wendy’s Closed on March 2nd. Where’s the Grief?
Posted by cmh gourmand on March 6, 2007
There was a lot of national media buzz about the Original Wendy’s on Broad Street closing last week. I visited during the final days to observe the passing of another bit of Columbus history. The manager reported business was 5 to 10 times more than a typical day. It was very crowded and many people were taking final photos. This Wendys was a Columbus landmark for years. It was filled with all types of historical Wendy’s knicknacks. Wendys was born the same year as me – so we grew up together. Much of the memorabilia will be moved to the corporate office in Dublin. So here is a last look before this disappears forever.
