American founder Dave Thomas opened the first Wendy’s restaurant in 1969 with an unwavering commitment to serve fresh, high-quality food at a fair price in a comfortable atmosphere. He focused on quality from the very beginning, with ‘Quality as Our Recipe’ as a core value from day one.Apparently, the new franchisee will determine the new locations and number of outlets that will open in Australia, so it’s still really early days.
Should you be excited about Wendy’s?Australia has seen Taco Bell, Wahlburgers, Carl’s Jr. and Five Guys open up in recent years, so do we really need another American chain muscling in? (Yes, but only if it’s In-N-Out). Wendy’s is well-known for a few reasons, only one of which is the iconic “Sir, this is a Wendy’s” meme. Its famous burger is Dave’s single cheeseburger which features a beef patty shaped like a square, topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato and the like. The menu also features iconic items such as French Toast sticks, nuggets, fries and chilli con carne. You might also be familiar with Wendy’s thick shakes otherwise known as Frostys. It’s a drink, it’s a dessert, it’s delicious. Does all of this warrant our excitement? Look, it’s no In-N-Out, but I can dream. If you are excited enough about the potential of Wendy’s coming to Australia that you have a few spare million to throw around, apply within. We’ll keep you posted on if or when Wendy’s expansion continues in Australia.
