Wendy's History and Facts for National Hamburger Month

Since Our Founding in 1969, Wendy’s Has Never Cut Corners on Hamburgers, and it Shows in Our Timeline

National Hamburger Month

From day one, Wendy’s® has never cut corners when it comes to our hamburgers…and it shows. Sourcing 100% of our beef from Beef Quality Assurance certified sources, our commitment to fresh, never frozen beef* (even during a national shortage) and Made for You products have been the foundation for our hamburger innovations over the past five decades.

With our history of hamburger mastery, it’s no surprise we like to go all out to celebrate National Hamburger Month! All month-long, Wendy’s premium hamburgers are buy-one, get-one (BOGO) for $1** via an in-app offer that refreshes each week! You’ll also be able to treat yourself to our beloved Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger for free** with any mobile Wendy’s purchase via an in-app offer from May 23rd through June 5th.

From classics like the Baconator® to newer menu items like the Bourbon Bacon Cheeseburger, Wendy’s knows how to perfect the insatiable build of fresh, never frozen beef, crispy Applewood smoked bacon (because no one does bacon like Wendy’s) and delicious cheese that builds with every bite, unlike anything our competitors offer. Our Made to Crave menu lineup is full of quality, flavorful food that delivers on our promise of always being craveable and affordable.

For all my hamburger aficionados out there, I invite you to take a trip down memory lane with me to learn more about our journey to mastering the craft of the perfect hamburger at Wendy’s.
