Quality is our Recipe
Quality is our Recipe...It’s the philosophy our founder Dave Thomas lived by...and it’s the philosophy on which Wendy’s is built. It’s why we work to deliver great-tasting food that is made when you order it and served to you by people who care.
It’s why Dave used fresh beef and produce at the first Wendy’s restaurant, and it’s why we still serve fresh ingredients today in our more than 6,500 restaurants.
It’s why we’re committed to Do the Right Thing, providing simple, honest and wholesome food and why we hold our suppliers to our high standards.
It’s why—for more than 40 years—we’ve been an outlier in the fast-food world. We put Quality in everything we do and it keeps us Deliciously Different.
We invite you to browse through the below pods to learn more about Wendy’s commitment to doing the right thing through our food, actions and people.
Profiles in Quality
We were practicing a farm-to-table model before the term even existed, which is why we've produced Profiles in Quality: From Start to Fresh. This video takes you to the Church Brothers fields in California to learn how we source the lettuce to make our fresh, great-tasting salads.
The Square Deal
Why launch a blog? Well, quite simply, we want to start a conversation from the point of view of those of us tasked to lead our organization and live out the values that Wendy’s was built upon. We aim to create a forum to tell Wendy’s story and highlight the beliefs that guide our business and our decisions every day.
You’ll often hear from members of our team who are particularly passionate and knowledgeable about certain topics which affect the Wendy's family and our valued customers.
