Wendy's Franchise UK

Doing business the Wendy’s way in the UK

At Wendy’s, we’ve made it our mission to delight every customer. Following in the footsteps of our founder, Dave Thomas, we’ve created one of the top quick-service restaurant franchises in the world, where every customer can enjoy freshly prepared, high-quality food in a welcoming environment. 

  • Wendy’s is the World’s 3rd largest QSR BURGER BRAND* 
  • 30+ Countries & Territories (outside the continental U.S) 
  • $12.5B** Global system-wide sales 
  • 6900+ restaurants and growing around the world 
*Euromonitor worldwide sales for burger limited-service restaurant report 
**Global system-wide sales as of January 2, 2022, excluding Venezuela and Argentina 

“We have been associated with the Wendy’s brand as a franchisee for over 30 years. It has been a relationship that we would not change in any respect. The Wendy’s brand is built around two key components: quality and great people.”Jorge Colón Gerena, International Franchisee Wendy’s Puerto Rico 

Wendy’s Company leadership demonstrates strong commitment to growing in the UK  

  • Company and Multi-Franchisee model to achieve scale quicker  
  • Leading brand execution and innovation to ensure success  
  • Wendy’s leadership expertise and partnership globally and in the region 

Quality That Stands Out  

Dave Thomas knew that if you cut corners and sacrifice quality, you lose everything else. That’s why our signature square hamburger patties are made from quality, specially sourced beef. The vegetables that top our sandwiches and fill our salads are farm-fresh and freshly prepared in each restaurant every morning. Wendy’s attention to food quality and signature menu items separate us from our competitors.
