Wendy’s closes Minnesota Avenue store with plans to expand

Oct. 29, 2019

Wendy’s has closed its longtime store on Minnesota Avenue.

The location at 708 S. Minnesota Ave. was more than 35 years old, franchisee Tim Boyle said.

Boyle, who also has the other two Sioux Falls locations and four in Sioux City, said the closure was part of a system optimization plan he is working on with Wendy’s corporate office, “which includes several steps, and one of them was closing the Minnesota Avenue store and looking for a new location.”

While he doesn’t have a new spot in mind, he said Sioux Falls ultimately will have three or four Wendy’s restaurants.

“Right now, we’re looking (at locations) everywhere to optimize sales,” he said.

Employees were transferred to the restaurants at 400 S. Lyons Ave. and 3701 W. 41st St.

Boyle said he hopes to have another store open in the next year.

The Minnesota Avenue building will be listed with Bender Commercial Real Estate Services.
