Wendy's reopens in Derwood (Photos)

has reopened at 15807 Frederick Road in the Derwood area of Rockville. The restaurant has completed a major renovation inside and out for a "fresh new look." It's apparently going forward with that blank building front; perhaps the front facade signage is still in-transit and will be installed later. Time for a Baconator, Chili Cheese Fries and a Chocolate Frosty.

Sneak peek: Derwood Wendy's makeover (Photos)

Here's a sneak peek at the renovated Wendy's restaurant at 15807 Frederick Road, in the Derwood area of Rockville. The parking lot has been entirely resurfaced and restriped. There are three kinds of seating inside the dining room: regular tables and chairs, high tables with barstool-style chairs, and booths. Check out the fancy lighting fixtures. It looks like there may be a sign still to be attached to the front, and there are lawn signs stacked inside waiting to be posted when the restaurant reopens. Stay tuned for a reopening date!

Derwood Wendy's renovation update (Photos)

You can see some significant cosmetic changes on the exterior of the Wendy's at 15807 Frederick Road in Derwood now. The restaurant is temporarily closed for a major renovation project. There are now long, black strips along the top area of the facade on the side of the building. Tyvek covers the center of that area, above the side entrance.

Where there was a stone facade cover at the front corner, you can see red peeking out from underneath a Reynobond covering. Construction materials are laid out in the parking area. While you are waiting for the Wendy's of the Future here, the Rockville Wendy's at 808 Rockville Pike is open and ready to take your Baconator and Chocolate Frosty order.

Wendy's closes for major renovations in Derwood (Photos)

at 15807 Frederick Road in Derwood has temporarily closed for major renovations. This isn't just a cosmetic makeover. The entire interior of the fast food restaurant has been gutted and will be rebuilt. 

An increased focus on takeout and drive-thru orders, and on mobile ordering, is at the heart of what the hamburger chain calls its Global Next Gen restaurant design. The new interior layout will also streamline operations, company CCO Kurt Kane said in August. It will also feature a new generation of technology throughout the ordering and cooking processes, including a new grill, and the ability to handle more mobile orders. Annual energy costs will be reduced by 6%.

, a daycare and boarding facility chain for dogs, will open a Rockville location. It will be on Frederick Road in the Derwood area, between 7-Eleven and Atlantic Guns. A central goal of Playful Pack, beyond the services it provides for dogs, is to assist rescue dogs in finding new homes.

Signs of life at Rockville Beer & Wine (Photos)

It was back in November 2021 when I broke the news that Rockville Beer & Wine would be opening at 15809 Frederick Road in Derwood. The store had a liquor license hearing in January, but still hasn't opened. Now some beer brand logo signs have appeared in the windows of the storefront, suggesting things are moving forward again, although the covered windows make it difficult to see what progress has been made inside. Another sign reads, "COLD BEER."
