History Of The Company:

Wendy’s was founded in 1969 in Columbus, Ohio. The founder, Dave Thomas, took inspiration for certain menu items – such as the square hamburgers – from a burger joint in his hometown in Kalamazoo, Michigan. There was also a co-founder involved in the franchise’s development whose name was John T. Schuessler. Since the 60s the restaurant chain has created a salad bar, entered (and subsequently left) the European market, and restructured its menu and standards to keep sales up.
