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.
$5 Late Night Combo
Wendy's is looking to spur some late night visits with a promotional combo that's only available after 10pm, since most Wendy's restaurants are now open till midnight or later. Wendy’s Moonlight Meal Deal was designed to meet these needs. The Moonlight Meal Deal includes a Double Stack hamburger, Chili Cheese Fries, and a large soft drink all for $5 after 10 pm.
The Double Stack starts with two junior hamburger patties, topped off with American cheese, ketchup, mustard, pickle, and onion.
The Chili Cheese Fries combine Wendy’s natural-cut fries with sea salt, with slow-cooked and meaty chili and a cheesy Cheddar sauce.
The move comes as rival McDonald's has recently been toying with offering "Breakfast After Midnight" and chains like Jack in the Box and Taco Bell have traditionally played up their open late night reputation.
