Wendy's LogoOn this date in history…  It was a November 15th in Columbus, Ohio when Dave Thomas opened the first Wendy’s Restaurant.

QUESTION:

In what year was Wendy’s founded?

ANSWER:

1969

EXPLANATION:

The idea for Wendy’s “old fashioned” hamburgers was actually inspired by Dave Thomas’ trips to a fast food hamburger restaurant Kewpee in his home town of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Kewpee sold square hamburgers and thick malt shakes.

Dave opened the first Wendy’s Restaurant on November 15, 1969.

Within a year, Thomas opened a second restaurant in Columbus, featuring what Wendy’s claims in its corporate history was “the first modern-day, drive-thru window.”

Today Wendy’s is the world’s third largest hamburger fast food chain with approximately 6,650 locations, following McDonald’s 31,000+ locations and Burger King’s 12,000+ locations.
