Update on closed Wendy's restaurant

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- NBC Right Now has learned new information about at least one of the Wendy's restaurants that recently closed in our area.

According to a manager, the Kennewick restaurant on Clearwater Avenue plans to re-open as early as next Thursday.

We're told a mix of former and newly hired employees will work there.

According to that Wendy's employee, franchisee BZB enterprises has taken on new operating partners.

Wendy's corporate office says BZB had ignored demands to comply with company food safety standards in the past.

We're still working to get an update on closed restaurants in Yakima, Walla Walla and Pendleton.
