Wendy's and Tn Valley

The Chickmauga Wendy’s will be across from McDonald’s on U.S. 27.

Wendy’s and the Tennessee Valley Credit Union will begin construction in Chickamauga following approval by the city council.

The council, on Nov. 4, approved zoning and designs for the properties.

“I’m excited about these projects,” council member Lee Miller said. “They both add value to our town, for our citizens, visitors and business owners.”

The council approved the Wendy’s in unanimous agreement, following the zoning recommendation by the Planning Commission on Oct.17.

The Wendy’s restaurant will be at 12706 U.S. 27, across from McDonald’s and will be part of a 12,000-square-foot retail complex with three available spaces for possible future businesses.

Tennessee Valley Credit Union will be in the curve on U.S. 27 across from the Food Lion and in front of Covenant Life Church.

The Planning Commission had rejected the initial bank design with a metal-and-wood exterior before recommending approval of an alternative design featuring stone and brick siding.

The council approved the second design, deeming it to be consistent with the exterior buildings of the historic district.
