After being closed for half the year, Wendy's is back open near the Miller Hill Mall.

Monday was the first day customers could check out the state-of-the-art fast food restaurant. A fire in the garbage shut it down for more than six months back in January.

The building was originally constructed in 1984 and this is its first major update complete with flat screen TVs, a fireplace and WIFI bar.

The owner said the update is some silver lining after disaster.

"The first day or two after the fire you're nervous, you're scared...but I guess there's opportunity," Owner Bob Sullivan said. "We were able to start over and do a nice remodel and go from there."

Also at the opening Monday, many employees who were paid through the reconstruction of the restaurant. Sullivan said his employees had bills and responsibilities, and he wanted to treat them well so they would come back.

A ribbon cutting for the new Wendy's will most likely take place later this month.
