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.
