Wendy's No. 1 (closed)

257 East Broad Street
Columbus, OH 43215



On November 15, 1969, Dave Thomas opened the very first Wendy's in this former automobile dealership. By the way, those blue and white stripes on the exterior are actually downspouts used as decorative trim!

I was fortunate enough to eat at this Wendy's a few times - even the second to last day it was open. The doors closed on March 2, 2007.
