Wendy’s® was founded in 1969 by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio. Dave built his business on the premise, “Quality is our Recipe®,” which remains the guidepost of the Wendy’s system. Wendy’s is best known for its made-to-order square hamburgers, using fresh, never frozen beef*, freshly-prepared salads with hand-chopped lettuce, and other signature items like chili, baked potatoes and the Frosty® dessert. The Wendy’s Company is committed to doing the right thing and making a positive difference in the lives of others. This is most visible through the Company’s support of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® and its signature Wendy’s Wonderful Kids® program, which seeks to find loving, forever homes for children waiting in the North American foster care system. Today, Wendy’s and its franchisees employ hundreds of thousands of people across more than 6,700 restaurants worldwide with a vision of becoming the world’s most thriving and beloved restaurant brand.

ESG/Ethical Impact

We remained committed to our three strategic growth pillars: building our breakfast daypart, driving our digital business and expanding our presence across the globe. Our accomplishments in these areas were built on our foundation of Fast Food Done Right, Operational Excellence and Good Done Right. We meaningfully grew our new U.S. breakfast daypart, with overall breakfast sales up approximately 25%* from the prior year. Through partnerships and promotions, we continued to see high customer satisfaction and repeat at breakfast, showing that our trial-driving programs are paying off. We are excited to launch breakfast in Canada in 2022, which will take the percentage of restaurants across the Wendy’s System serving breakfast to approximately 95%. Our team continued to innovate our digital business across the globe – from bringing on new delivery partners, to cementing a strategic partnership with Google to improve how we use data to serve our customers and to continuing to grow the Wendy’s Rewards Program – all while ensuring that the protection of data security and privacy remained top of mind. Overall, we saw U.S. digital sales grow by more than 75%.* We also continued to make strides toward our goal of having 8,500 to 9,000 global restaurants by the end of 2025, opening more than 200 new restaurants in 2021, which was our highest in almost 20 years, despite a challenging supply chain environment. We also celebrated a number of global milestones, including our launch in the United Kingdom, our 400th Canadian restaurant, our 1,000th international restaurant and the opening of more than 50 delivery kitchens around the world.
