District manager Adam Ehrlich told Patch the plans remains for the fast-food eatery to open on Sept. 9. "That is the plan as long as everything goes as scheduled," Ehrlich said. "But it could be a week after."
Ehrlich also confirmed that the company was in the hiring phase for the restaurant, but had no specific details about how to apply. He referred other questions to the company's PR firm, and said he would ask officials there to contact Patch with more details.
Wendy's website provides a link for careers and a means to search for jobs, but we couldn't find any positions listed on the site for Chesterfield late last week.
The Wendy's location is on the north side of Chesterfield Airport Road at the Arnage traffic light—one-half mile west of Boone's Crossing.
While it would be the only one of its kind in Chesterfield, Wendy’s will join a host of other fast food joints in the area that specialize in burgers, including less common franchises such as Smashburger and Cheeburger Cheeburger.
Wendy's construction manager Andy Blackburn previously told Patch that the decision to build in Chesterfield Valley came after their Real Estate division scoured the city for the right location.
“The demographics for this location fit the target that Wendy’s looks for in a site with a good residential and commercial base," he said.
