Wendy's Restaurant is an international fast food chain that was founded by Dave Thomas in 1969, in Columbus, Ohio, USA. Founder, Rex David "Dave" Thomas, is an American philanthropist (The Wendy's Company 2012). His fast food restaurant majorly specialized in hamburgers. He was born in July, 1932 in New Jersey to unmarried woman that was not known to him. However, he was raised by Auleva Thomas and Rex. This is the reason why Dave Thomas has been renown worldwide as an advocate for adoption.
Since 2006, the company has been headquartered in Dublin, Ohio. Now known as Wendy’s Company, Triarc has owned the company since 2008. The Wendy’s Company is the third largest quick service company in the world. Its system comprises not less than 6,500 company and franchise restaurants in the USA and 27 internationally. The company’s vision has always been to stand above the rest. It stands for honest, higher quality, and wholesome, fresh food, prepared as per client’s order.
In essence, Wendy's Restaurant is different from other fast food chain restaurants in a number of ways. First, while other fast food chain restaurants employ mass production of food and use frozen beef, Wendy's Restaurant uses an innovative method that enables it prepare fresh, made-to-order hamburgers (The Wendy's Company 2012). Thos has been their mode of operation and continue to follow the legacy of Dave Thomas, the innovator of the idea. This has made the company serve its food better than other competitor companies. Equally, as opposed to other fast food chain restaurants, it is a quick service restaurant that offers nothing but an honest food and higher quality food. The food is prepared wholesomely by the caring people who never cut corners. Employees as well work around and offer to refill people’s drinks. Comparatively, this is not the case in other fast food restaurants. Generally, the major difference is the use of fresh beef, and grilling burgers to order.
