Editor’s Note: As of Thursday, April 8, 2021, Wendy’s has reopened after passing its health inspection.

According to state health department officials, Wendy’s in Sebastian was shut down Tuesday after they investigated a complaint filed against the restaurant.

A health inspector visited Wendy’s, located at 1625 U.S. Highway 1, in Sebastian, and found roach activity present in several areas of the kitchen.

The kitchen floors were soiled in grease, and ceiling tiles were soiled in dust and grease.

In addition, the food manager certification expired, and training was never provided for other employees.

On Wednesday, the state inspected Wendy’s again and kept the restaurant shut down due to the problems that weren’t fixed from Tuesday.

There was an exterminator at the restaurant Wednesday, and the health inspector will revisit the location on Thursday.
