A Family Restaurant Now Makes A Surprising Closure in Ohio

A family restaurant now makes a surprising closure in Ohio with fans crying they have been ‘priced out’ of rising menu changes.

After a Wendy’s location closed in Ohio, fans of the restaurant chain have begun to wonder whether they are being “priced out.”

Signs around the Whitehall, Ohio property – about 8 miles from Columbus – stated that the Wendy’s location was permanently closed.

However, the exact reason for the Ohio store closing is still unclear.

A media representative said employees are being transferred to other nearby Wendy’s locations, according to local NBC affiliate WCMH-TV.

A commercial real estate company said the property will be available to renters as soon as September 1, 2024.

Whitehall locals said they’re getting priced out of their own neighborhood.

“Hard to believe Wendy’s is closing,” said one Facebook user.

“It’s a blue collar area, but none really that close by.

Maybe the area can’t afford Wendy’s price point these days.”

“Fast food is getting so expensive,” echoed another user.

“And for parents with kids! Forget it. A middle-class family with three kids are getting priced out.”

However, others said they’re not surprised that Wendy’s had to shutter its doors.

Many social media users claimed that the quality of the food just isn’t up to par anymore.

One user cited several other restaurants in the area that he would rather visit including, Five Guys, Panera Bread, Chick-fil-A, and Jersey Mike’s Subs.

“Maybe they got tired of Wendy’s because there are more options they prefer now,” they commented.

“There is a ton more – right on that street.

Doesn’t seem hard to believe that people are showing they will spend their money elsewhere.”

This comes after the chain restaurant introduced several new enticing deals for frugal customers.

In May, Wendy’s announced that burger lovers can pick up one of their favorite sandwiches from Wendy’s for only 1 cent.

This promotion was rolled out for National Burger Day.

Later that month, the chain announced that it was bringing back its $3 breakfast combo.

It followed the introduction of a new $5 menu by McDonald’s as fast food chains look to attract cash-strapped diners.

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
