Wendy's hallmark square hamburgers and homey atmosphere were introduced in Columbus, Ohio, in 1969, and since that time the company has enjoyed phenomenal growth.
Wendy's International, Inc. is the operator, developer, and franchiser of the Wendy's restaurant chain, which is the number three hamburger chain in the United States, trailing McDonald's and Burger King. At the end of 2001, there were more than 6,000 Wendy's restaurants around the world; about 5,300 of these were located in the United States with the balance located in 26 other countries and territories.
Wendy's New Side Dishes
A lot of fast food chains focus on introducing new sandwiches or salad meals but now its latest focus is on sides. Wendy's has stepped up the sides game with the introduction of three new signature side items not typically seen in an operation with drive-thru service: Macaroni & Cheese, Chili Cheese Fries and Baked Sweet Potatoes.
