Sprucing Up Wendy's on Plymouth Rd.

Ready for the next tenant

by Micheline Maynard

From the January, 2021 issue

The Wendy's in the parking lot of the Courtyard Shops closed in the summer of 2019, and residents have wondered what might go into the space ever since. Recently, a maintenance crew removed the last Wendy's signs and spruced up the exterior of the vacant building.

A crew member, who did not give his name, said he was part of a group of workers who are regularly dispatched from Wendy's headquarters in Dublin, Ohio, to perform repairs on the fast-food chain's buildings.

That's sparked speculation that the empty Wendy's could get another tenant. One name that's floating around is Culver's, the Wisconsin-based chain known for butter burgers and frozen custard, whose only Ann Arbor outpost is on Jackson Rd.

Spokeswoman Alison Wedig says Culver's has no current plans for a second Ann Arbor location. East-siders willing to drive a ways will soon have another option, though: a new Culver's is going up in Canton, on an out-lot at the Ford Rd. Meijer.     (end of article)
