The newly renovated Wendy’s restaurant on Bullsboro Drive reopened last weekend with a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Newnan/Coweta.

Wendy’s participated in two trial lunch periods on Friday and Saturday in which all food was at no cost to customers and donations were welcomed. Wendy’s then matched the accumulated donations and were able to raise $2,222 for the local Boys and Girls Club.

Wendy’s also has plans for an additional branch opening in front of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan this year. At that time, the restaurant will be utilizing the same fundraising platform in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Club.
