What used to be a Wendy’s on the corner Fifth Avenue and Atwood Street is now a huge empty space in Pitt’s campus (and heart). The doors closed in February and local fast food lovers where heartbroken when they found out the last day to get a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger and Frosty was Valentine’s Day.
There was a time when the spacious burger joint was one of the busiest places in Oakland to grab a meal during lunchtime. College students, doctors, and high-school kids skipping class filled the seats of this Wendy’s every day. Now there’s one less place to grab a bite around Pitt – but maybe it’s not so bad after-all. A great reason to eat a little healthier and support the local businesses like Pizza Sola, Oishii Bento, Red Oak Cafe, Dave & Andy’s, Sweet Berry, Fuel & Fuddle, Joe Mama’s, etc… But don’t forget, it is Oakland so don’t eat just anywhere!
What should open up in this space next?
