There are more than 6,500 Wendy’s® restaurants currently in operation in the United States and 29 countries and U.S. territories worldwide. New market expansion and further development within existing markets will continue to be dominant drivers of Wendy’s worldwide strategy over the coming years. Ultimately, we believe that earnings generated from international markets will be a significant component of our ability to generate long-term value for our stockholders.  With our superior-quality ingredients, unique menu offerings, contemporary restaurant designs and flexible approach to developing new markets, we believe that Wendy’s is meaningfully differentiated and well-positioned for future growth.
