Streetsboro -- The Wendy's fast food restaurant at 9143 Route 14 in Streetsboro will be closing on Dec. 15 at 5 p.m., according to City Economic Development Director Bill Bishilany.
"They really haven't told us much so far, so we are not sure why exactly they are closing or what is going to happen," he said. "All I know is, they are still accepting applications and are hoping to open up another location in Streetsboro, though I don't know where."
The current employees are expecting to keep their jobs when the new location opens, said a manager at the store, who wished to remain anonymous.
"It's unfortunate that they are having to close down at this time of year, but there is hope for them to stay in Streetsboro," said Bishilany, adding that the city hopes to know more in January.
Officials from Wendy's corporate office didn't return calls for comment from the Streetsboro Gateway News.
