Wendy's is on its way to building a new restaurant on South State Street in Westerville.

Wendy's is on its way to building a new restaurant on South State Street in Westerville.

The Westerville Planning Commission voted 6-0 last week in favor of plans to replace the existing restaurant at 599 S. State St.

The new building, which will be constructed later this year, will be brick and stone with two towers on the corners closest to State Street - nearly identical to plans created by a consultant working for the city of Westerville.

The Wendy's plans brought forward at the beginning of the meeting were similar, but not quite what the commission was looking for, but company spokesman George Schweitzer said Wendy's was willing to compromise.
