The new Wendy’s in Covington will have their grand opening March 16.

The restaurant, located at 16703 SE 272nd Street, boasts an ultra-modern design based on Midwestern contemporary architecture and was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, according to a release from the company.

A few of the exterior design features include large windows to bring light into the dining room and outdoor patio seating.

The interior will multiple seating options for all types of customers, a digital menu board, free WiFi, Direct TV and a faux fireplace with a casual seating area.

“It’s very different from what our customers are used to but we think they’ll really like the fresh look and feel of the new Wendy’s.” said David A. Antis, Divisional Vice President of the 46-restaurant Wendy’s franchise entity in Seattle.

Remodeling restaurants is part of a multi-year strategy to reinvigorate the Wendy’s brand throughout North America and the way customers interact with Wendy’s. The brand strategy involves re-imaging the entire Wendy’s menu, as evidenced by past launches of several new items, such as Strawberry Fields Salad, Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger and Pretzel Pub Chicken and Smoke Gouda Chicken on Brioche. Coming this summer is a new Premium Beverage Line.

As part of the grand opening week’s activities, a KQMV Radio Remote is scheduled for March 18 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the new Wendy’s. On March 19, a ribbon cutting is planned with Mayor Harto and her staff at 9 a.m.

A similarly designed Wendy’s recently opened in Renton on Southeast Carr Road near the Benson Fred Meyer.
