Wendy's Sleek New Prototype Is Deliciously Eco-Friendly

By Desirée Kaplan

Wendy’s has officially unveiled a new restaurant model called Smart 55. It made its debut a few weeks ago in Portsmouth, Virginia. From the interior to the exterior, the new layout is more open and includes private booths, a wi-fi bar, and touch screen self-serve fountains with over one hundred drink options. Most importantly, the model is also designed to create a smaller eco-footprint compared to other standalone Wendy’s restaurants. 

To begin with, this building model is smaller. While typical Wendy’s restaurants need at least an acre of real estate, these can be built on an area as small as a quarter of an acre. Still, with the open plan, the building can fit almost 60 people at the available seating areas within the 2,600 square foot layout. 

On this date in 1969, Dave Thomas opened the first Wendy’s.
