Salad Station is a chain of make-your-own salad bars. Customers choose their ingredients and their salads are priced by the pound.

The location is the 12th in the Salad Station franchise and just one of more than 100 restaurants in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

In town, several restaurants moved in and out of the area, including an Arby’s that recently closed. A shrimp basket location was also closed.

Wendy’s has been no stranger to closures lately. They recently closed 15 of their “ghost kitchens.”

These locations were a collaboration with Reef Technology and would only fulfill delivery orders.

In 2021, Wendy’s plans to build 700 such locations across the United States. They are currently only planning a maximum of 150 worldwide.

Wendy’s will now shift its focus to claw back some of its profits after reporting a net loss of five stores in the first quarter of 2023.

They also have plans with logistics company Pipedream to develop a robotic delivery system. This would allow meals to be delivered to underground customers in seconds.

Deepak Ajmani, Chief Operations Officer at Wendy’s in the US, said: “The Instant Pickup system has the potential to enable faster, faster and more accurate mobile ordering service, allowing us to consistently deliver hot and fresh Wendy’s products to our fans delivery.”

They plan to try to incorporate it into a store later this year.

The new technologies are an attempt to increase ordering speed and customer satisfaction.

“We know that processing orders quickly and accurately leads to higher customer satisfaction.”
