Huge News: It Looks Like US Burger Chain Wendy's Is Preparing to Launch in Australia
The popular burger chain — not to be mistaken with the local ice-creamery — is making moves to bring its famous square burgers to Australia.
September 19, 2022
With over 7000 stores to its name worldwide, Wendy's is one of the world's biggest and most recognisable burger chains. While a majority of its outposts are scattered across the United States, the chain also has over 1000 international locations in countries like New Zealand, Canada and the UK. Now, the American burger chain may be landing down under in the near future.
Australian franchise consulting firm DC Strategy announced that it is working with the burger brand to help develop a strategy to bring its famous square hamburgers to Australia and open franchises throughout the country.
"The Wendy's Company is looking for world-class, experienced franchise partners with strong operations experience and a proven track record for growing brands in Australia," a statement on DC Strategy's website says.
The consulting firm is now taking applications for individuals interested in becoming an Australian Wendy's franchisee.
The first Wendy's was opened by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio in 1969. It quickly grew due to the popularity of its burgers and iconic Frostys, growing to over 1000 restaurants in its first nine years of operations.
