Selectmen Stephen Raymond and Holly Young, and Town Manager Shaun A. Suhoski, welcomed representatives of investors Hamra Enterprises and agents from Wendy's Restaurants at a ceremonial groundbreaking for a new Wendy's slated to open before Thanksgiving.

A large contingent was present at the site, located off Route 2A near Exit 18 for Route 2 near North Quabbin Commons, including state Sen. Anne Gobi, state Rep. Susannah Whipps, North Quabbin Chamber and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Mark Wright and Athol EDIC chairman Jim Meehan.

The neighboring development site remains busy as well with a Hobby Lobby, pet store and new eight-screen cinema among the next line of tenants in development.
