    Dania , did Dave Thomas start his empire in Columbus OH. I know everyone starts somewhere. I never realized it was in Ohio.

    You would think the chain would make this a destination store serving classic Wendy’s meals with vintage accessories like chairs , napkins and decor..

    Oh, and here’s where to pay your respects.
