Wendy’s is coming to a busy center of Jackson Heights.

The popular fast food restaurant recently hung up “coming soon” signs at 72-32 Broadway, across from Diversity Plaza and near the Roosevelt Ave-Jackson Heights subway station.

According to Raymond Arruda, division marketing manager for Wendy’s, the company hopes to open this location in mid-August. It will be 5,000-square-feet across two stories.

“We have long wanted to tap into this community and are really excited we have found a location,” Arruda said.

Signs stating that the restaurant is now hiring have also appeared in the windows. Arruda said Wendy’s hopes to employ between 50 and 60 local individuals.

The hours will be 9 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week, though Arruda said that is subject to change. There will not be a drive through at this location.

Update: This story has been updated to include information from Wendy’s.

Definitely untrue, I’ve seen older people working at Wendy’s. Whoever told you that is one of the many nasty managers (that any restaurant can have) that Wendy’s seems to have.

I’m going to be eating there every day! I’m more into their burgers, than their business practices. Can’t wait!

Wendy’s is unfair to farmworkers. Wendy’s refuses to join the Fair Food program and pay 1 cent more per pound for tomatoes grown in Florida. Wendy’s now sources it’s tomatoes in Mexico where the pay and working conditions of the farm workers is worse, but the tomatoes are cheaper.
