Wendy's History

Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers was founded in 1969 by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio.  The chain featured square hamburger patties and Frosties.

In 1970, Thomas opened a second location in Columbus.  This location would add the first modern drive thru window in 1971.

In 1972, the first franchise is sold.

By 1976, there are 500 restaurants and the company goes public.

In 1978, the 1000th location opens.

In 1979, Wendy’s was the first chain to introduce a salad bar.

By 1983, there are 2500 locations.

In 1985, the company merges with Tim Hortons.

By 1987, there are 5000 locations.

In 2002, founder Dave Thomas dies.

In 2006, the company headquarters is moved to Dublin, Ohio where they remain today.

In 2008, the company merged with Triac, owner of Arby’s.

Today, Wendy’s is the third largest hamburger fast food chain in the world with nearly 7000 restaurants worldwide.

Went to Wendy’s in Norwood, Oh 45212 Surrey Square. I got everything from value menu which is .99 cents. Got 4 cheeseburgers, 2 frostys and fries. That is 7 items. Total $6.93 +.48=$7.41. I gave a $10.00 bill. Change should be $2.59. I got back $2.00 even. I got shorted .59 . I didn’t want to wait telling her I didn’t get the correct change, because I already waited over 20 minutes. I asked her if receipt was in my bag. She looked at I assume was cash register and said yes. I came home to get receipt out of bag and surprise it wasn’t there. I then tried to call to no avail. Surprise no answer. If she is doing this to everyone she has a nice side business going on. You might say it’s only .59 but I’m on disability. Every penny counts. I just started going back to your establishment and now this happens again. Boy that lady really has the nerve to to this. I would like a credit from you. I will take the time next time she tries to steal my money again. Hop you investigate this matter and dtore. I won’t got back until I here from you. Sherry Kathman. Thank you.

On 4/16/2015 I went to Wendy’s located on 6210 20th street the host name was tequila as I come to the window I try my sweet tea and It was sour… I know that tea need to be “made” every 4 hours I work at sonic as a shift manager and I can tell you that the “customer” are the boss. I order a baconator with no mayo so as I get ready to leave the host said so rude comments about the situation to her manager then as I check my food my food was cold I mean cold cheese wasn’t melted bun was cold I will never eat there again this was at 10:55pm I thought they close at midnight for drive thru? My order number is 3348 it was $9.61


concerned employee April 16, 2015 at 10:28 pm

I have been at Wendys for almost a year now and enjoy working there, or I should say
used to enjoy working there. I understand all to well about having to keep payroll down
by sending employees home. This is what is upsetting me the most, in the past 3 wks
the store failed to open on time, which means those of us that did and had to wait
outside will not be paid for those three hours we waited… if you add up all the times
we have waited outside it comes to about full days work, and they still insist on
cutting hours…………..Thank you for letting me vent on your website

Store #05108534 in Seminole Fla . I visited this store on 4/9/15 at about 8PM , The food was good ,but thats not why I’m commenting . Theresa was behind the counter , there was an old couple with 3 G-Kids (brats) , She handled a situation that would have been near impossible for me to handle , then thanked me for my patience . She needs to be Sainted for the way she handled herself . I sat down to eat and the Brats were Raisin’ Cane , she then went to the Old folks table and asked them if she could do any thing to make their experience more enjoyable , I think they understood that their G-kids needed some disiplin’n …..She Was Great .


anonymous for my safety April 7, 2015 at 10:51 pm

I seeked employment at wendys because I thought id feel at home and that itd be like a family and comfortable where also I had gone many times griwing up with my family and enjoyed meals there. Only working four days, three out of the four days I got cut and sent home hours before scheduled shift end because of “over production” and needing to cut employees so they can maintain profit. Being on the verge of homelessness I had stuck in those days best I could with the minimum wage and little training also partly chaotically due to the cut scheduled times. Also in employee handbook stated I could wear a necklace and at interview and all of four days I was there I wore the same necklace, a rainbow pride necklace that means a lot to me. The manager who hired me said I couldnt wear it anymore , said it was “unprofessional.” Also an incident happened with a coworker that I told her about a few days of being home ridden from suicidal ideations from stress in general life but also the incident that a coworker lasged out on me in a rage in front of other coworkers and even customers. One of which she said I shouldnt be working there, her rageful, hateful remarks were aggressed by not being satisfied of my work, which I find inconvenient since I had no way to get proper training from not just daily being cut during what was suppose to be learning the company, but also lack of being taught necessary skills to be in ease of handling efficient work processes that are idealy learned by training and time taken to learn adjust into the company which I wasnt given. Today I called and talked to that manager who hired me and decided I should try and confide in her and see if it could be fixed and after telling her about my stresses and the incident with the coworker she told me that the girl had apologized and that she knew her outside of work beforehand. I told her I hadnt been in because of the incident and the cut in hours and about the stress and depression and suicidal ideations that I previously had. She showed no empathy for one of her employees causing a panic attack in front of numerous people. I am also on ssi disability and the coworker and manager didnt see me fit to work there and the manager said she didnt think id make it there and that I was always in their way. The whole experience is ptsd I will never forget and for having wanting to build my growth with this company in also honor of my decesed grandmother who it was out tradition to eat at wendys when I was growing up, I am very sickened by the pain I now have to carry of disappointment in something I thought woukd be of comfort and what I thought would be a good fulfilling experience.

Adam Garber March 30, 2015 at 2:33 am

I have a receipt, there is no 8 digit store code, I tried to leave a remark that my burgers and bun had to have been microwaved as they tasted stale and the buns were soggy and wrinkled. When I called the 1-888 I could leave no comment as I had no I digit store number. Email me and I will email a picture of my receipt. This is ridiculous that I have a receipt but can leave no remarks, the Wendy’s in ND is way more than 1.5 times the cost of any Wendy’s in Florida, yet has less than half the quality. The person at the window was fine but the quality of food has been way below par for Wendy’s. I worked at a Kewpee in Lima, OH, where Dave Thomas learned their trade to open his first Wendy’s in Columbus, OH. I’m not a fucking idiot and know quality fast food when I get it. And if this is what I can expect from this Wendy’s I might as well go to burger king or mcdonald’s.


karen March 22, 2015 at 5:20 pm

Dear Wendy’s
I am currently employed at one of your locations 517 E Martin town Rd North Augusta S.C.I am a dedicated employee that comes to work do my work. Professionally groom polite and respectful.I’ve received several compliment on my performance by many of your customers.Recently it seem my manager has a personal issue with me
Today I was sent home early because I chose to speak with her about the situation. Prior to that the following week I had asked for a break to take my medicine because I have migraines got no response.I was sent home.My problem is that you can’t have someone take in consideration that something need to be done.The Foundation I knew was a man called Dave whom had a daughter name Wendy and he cared about his employees and customers. Those day are long gone.I only wonder how Mr Dave would feel knowing this Franchise he built has deteriorated tremendously. Loosing employees because you choose to keep managers that treat human being like they are less than them speaks volume.A minute out of your day would be nice if only for you to see theses companies that are DBA Wendy’s. Sometimes its about how you treat your employees that produce growth.maybe they should do an episode of that show at my restaurant and see how things are done.You would disaffiliate yourself with this one.praying for change or an interview with our local news channel
Thanks have a blessed day.

Angela Littleton February 22, 2015 at 6:17 pm

Hello my name is Angela first I would like to say I have always loved Wendy’s! I put in an application for hire at the Wendy’s @5905 Richie hwy Glen Burnie, MD, I received a Call for interview came in I must say the manager that did my interview Lamar was unprofessional,he was yelling at unsatisfied customer and at his employees my interview was literally 1 minute he was very hyper, seemed to be rushing thru like he had better things to do I said to my self Wow do I Really want to work here? Also looking around at how dirty the dining room and tables were instead of reporting this my thought was Wow they Really need me I would make sure this place didn’t look like this image is everything as a customer I would not of ate there. Lamar told me he would call me tomorrow to let me know about the job it was a yes from him considering I have past experience especially with a Wendy’s, and it would be day time he had to run it by district manger Melissa. Tomorrow came and went no phone call,I called the next day I talked to Lamar I asked about the phone call I was told I’d get he was rude and said give her time talking about Melissa that they had got a million applications and she’d call me Well he said he’d give me a call so a little over a weeK went by and I received a call from Lamar it was February 14 around 12:30 telling me I have the job I must be there at 2:00 if I can’t then no job! I was like okay I can be there Thank God I could tho being last minute I have Four kids I had to make sure I had someone to take care of the. Get there I met Melissa she seemed nice she put me in the system made it officially I am an employee ! Yay!! I was excited! She told me Lamer would be here at 4:00 if I wanted to wait he has my schedule! Okay so I waited hour and half. Melissa proceeds to tell me it’s night shift I’d be working okay didn’t expect that I was told originally day okay it was a problem for me at first I had to figure a ride I was expecting to take the bus there is no bus past 12 am. Lamar told me to figure it out and call him. So I walked out the store figured it out only was ten minutes he told me they found someone to work to next couple of nights for me to start Wednesday he was very rude. I came there Wednesday the manger on that day Marsha was very upset no one told her I was coming in she didn’t want to work me nor train me she’s mad cause no one let her know I’m like Wow I need this job I want this job it’s slot of drama The day I was supposed to start February 14 Melissa told me I could where the shoes I had on she would order me shoes Well the manager Marsha calls Melissa very upset what I’m I supposed to do she doesn’t have the right shoes no uniform she looks at me and says I can’t work you you don’t have the right shoes I’m like Oh my she’s trying everything not to work me cause she doesn’t want to deal with a New employee I looked at her I told her I need this job I will go across the street to buy spit of shoes that are suitable. When I came back she was upset I did I guess she didn’t expect me too! I worked that night it was horrible the way the store was. It wasn’t being handle correctly. After work Marsha told me to call Melissa in the morning for my schedule I called. Melissa tells me to take the next two days off come in Saturday yes I’m a little upset this was supposed to be full-time that’s how I was hired I didn’t show it. I said okay! Saturdacomes @2:30 I noticed 3 missed calls from Wendy I called back it was Melissa asking if I’m coming in cause,of the blizzard we ate getting it’s snowing. I said yes she said okay I will see you when you get here. We had got I think about 8 inches but I’m coming in I take pride in my job. It took me 2 hours to get there I see the store is dark I called,no answer! I called Lamar a manger I said no.one is. At the store what Is going on he said Oh Yeah they told Melissa to close store and she didn’t call me to tell me that is so unprofessional. I’m sorry. Something has to be done at this store I had to quit cause there is to much drama the store is ran very unprofessional there and they don’t respect there employees. I mean its no organization there the store is dirty and its not a healthy place to work.I would of love being a part of Wendys as i did before and been a good asset I would of made Wendy’s money and the work place would be organized the employees and customers would be satisfied always! And you guys too! At this store being across from Marley Station Mall is an embaressment i know you dont want it to be . I hope this issue is adressed.I would love to work at another store just not that one.


Jessica February 21, 2015 at 9:24 pm

I currently work atvwendys on Patton north Carolina and one manger wrote me up for doing my job and lied about what she wrote mrnup for so I didn’t sign the paper so she called our big manger and lied about what truly happen because she is nothing but a bully she shouldn’t be able to wear a manager tag. Managers are suppose to treat everyone the same and I’m the dog when I’m there and she cussed me out in front of customers
