    his week Wendy's is bringing its beloved Carolina Classic Burger to all restaurant menus across North and South Carolina. To pay homage to some of the best flavors of the South, this regional twist on a classic Wendy's burger is back by popular demand – but only for a limited time. Featuring zesty chili, diced onions, mustard and tangy cole slaw topped on a Wendy's quarter pound fresh, never frozen beef patty*, customers can get it all with the Carolina Classic. Previously sold in Charlotte-area restaurants, this flavor-filled burger is now expanding to the rest of the state and throughout...
  • McDonald's Just Got Some Surprising New Competition From A Company That's Suddenly A Huge Threat

    The trouble with too many fast-food restaurants is that they're often so close together. It's like car dealers who line up in auto malls, waiting for customers to greet each brand in turn, as if it's a wedding line. With the fast-food joints, rivals can see what the competition is doing by just looking out of the window. Which makes me wonder what the staff at McDonald's are going to be thinking next year. You see, one of McDonald's peskier rivals -- Wendy's -- just announced that it's going to start doing something that may seem a touch obvious. It's...

    FULL TITLE: Wendy's manager is under fire for blaming his employees' poor service on having a 'talentless pool of ex-junkies' to hire from in the small Massachusetts town A Wendy's manager has sparked outrage for insulting his employees and bashing his Massachusetts town as a drug-riddled, talentless 'pool of ex-junkies'. Wendy's customer Matthew Rose said that he had been shocked by the bad service he received when he visited the restaurant on Cranberry Highway in Wareham on August 3. He says he returned a few days later, to a similarly terrible experience. He decided to send a complaint to Wendy's...

    While many companies support abortion and give hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood, fast food giant Wendy’s is going in a completely different direction. Watch the video: Dave Thomas, Wendy’s founder, was adopted at 6-weeks old, and he devoted his life to saving children in need.

    As “woke capitalism” becomes more prevalent, one multinational – the restaurant giant Wendy’s – is bucking the trend and promoting life. Wendy’s and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, named after the late founder of the fast food chain, are standing up to better the lives of children in the foster care system. While liberals complain about conservatives not caring about children once they are born, a program created by the Foundation, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, finds homes for children who are older, part of a group of siblings, or have developmental disabilities.
  • How Italian Americans can and should be considered people of color

    06/05/2019 2:05:33 PM PDT · by OddLane · 282 replies ^ | May 23, 2019 | Christopher Binetti
    Wendy’s has a commercial where a group of stereotypical Italian Americans crowd around an idealized white person and act crudely and threateningly towards him. They eat like slobs, eating spaghetti and meatballs, acting suspiciously of him, and generally make buffoons of themselves. They wear gold chains, have a darker complexion than the white man, and have very ethnic features such as black hair and big noses. Most obviously, the premise is that they are all mobsters and that the white man is there to defeat their evil. At the end of the commercial, two very non-Italian looking federal agents are...
  • San Antonio officials want to hide comments condemning Chick-fil-A

    City officials in San Antonio, who discriminated against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A in their airport contracting, are trying to hide from the public their conversations now that they’re under investigation for their behavior. WND reported in December the chain with the famed cattle urging “Eat More Chikin” has been forecast to leap past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s to become the third largest restaurant chain in the U.S. The liberal hatred for the chain erupted when Dan Cathy, the son of founder S. Truett Cathy, said in an interview in 2012 he supports traditional marriage. Since then, students on college campuses...

Chick-fil-A would leapfrog past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, the No. 4, 5 and 6 chains respectively, according to the firm.

    GASTONIA, N.C. - An employee at a North Carolina Wendy’s who called a customer “Chubby” on a receipt has been fired.

Shue went to the restaurant earlier this month and ordered two sandwiches. He said he provided his name “clear as day.” However, he noticed the name “Chubby” was written on the receipt. Another employee called out the name on the receipt when the order was ready, prompting laughter from people dining at the restaurant.

    .....The struggling sandwich chain has seen customer traffic plummet a whopping 25 percent over the past five years.... In a Nov. 30 memo to franchisees that revealed the stomach-churning drop, Subway’s owners promised $25 million to boost marketing this spring for the company’s 44,000 locations and to bring back a limited-time, $4.99 footlong sandwich promotion..... ....the crucial footlong deal — aimed squarely at the McDonald’s dollar menu — is in danger because of a revolt by franchise owners, who fret that doubling down on discounts will further shave their already thin profits. More than 400 of them have signed a...

Wendy's replied to one of those tweets saying "this employee's actions do not reflect our company's values and they have since been terminated."

    Beware the $15 minimum wage for menial labor — it’ll eventually come back to bite you in the hindquarters. As wages for fast-food workers continue to spiral upwards, hamburger chain Wendy’s is fast-replacing human workers with automation. The company announced this week that by the second half of the year, ordering will be available through the use of self-service kiosks throughout its entire 6,000 locations, according to Investors Business Daily. It will be up to each franchisee whether to use the new technology or to stick with the old system. Wendy’s President Todd Penegor observed that some locations have already...

    Wendy’s fast food restaurant chain says it will begin offering self-serve kiosks at its 6,000-plus locations across America, making them available to costumers by the end of 2016. The fast food giant’s decision to move toward automation comes just as “Fight for $15”–a progressive protest movement, pushing minimum wage hikes–is applying pressure on state governments to raise wages for low-skilled fast food workers. Last August, Wendy’s CFO Todd Penegor told investors that mandated wage hikes will cause his company to pursue other innovative avenues that could lead to fewer jobs for low-skill workers. “We continue to look at initiatives and...
