ATHOL — The Wendy’s at North Quabbin Commons is open for business, having had a soft opening on Dec. 8.

The restaurant is owned by Hamra Enterprises, a Wendy’s franchisee with 35 eateries throughout New England. Eve Metheny, the director of brand marketing for Hamra Enterprises, said a grand opening is expected late next month.

Metheny previously said the Athol location was to span 3,324 square feet, with 75 seating options inside and 12 outside. Mike Hamra, president and CEO of Hamra Enterprises, said in a statement that the location has curb appeal and a lot of natural lighting. The restaurant features wireless internet, a television and a fireplace.

According to information from Metheny, the new restaurant is part of a multi-year strategy Wendy’s International started in 2011 to reinvigorate the brand and to strengthen customers’ experiences. The new design helps Wendy’s stand out and has “created new restaurant jobs and economic growth through construction and development in our local communities such as Athol.”
