The restaurant on U.S. Route 13 at East Commerce Street in Smyrna has been closed since early December for renovations.

The renovations are continuing this week at Wendy’s restaurant at the corner of U.S. Route 13 and East Commerce Street in Smyrna. The restaurant has been closed since early December.

The estimated reopening date is the end of February, according to an announcement Thursday from the restaurant’s management.

The plan includes an all-new interior with more seating, a new kitchen and new restrooms, while the exterior of the building is being redecorated, a new sign has been installed and the parking lot is being expanded. The home next to the parking lot on East Commerce Street has been demolished to make way for the larger parking lot.

The restaurant opened at the site nearly 40 years ago, according to the management’s announcement.
