We're proud that our franchisees come from all walks of life.
Whether it's longtime members of the Wendy's family who worked their way up the ranks to ownership, or an entrepreneur who believes in our mission and aligns with our values. Here's what they have to say.

Charlie Davis has a forty-year relationship with Wendy's, climbing the ladder from Assistant Manager to Director of Operations and is now a Wendy's franchisee.
“My family came to America when I was a small child and I grew up here going to school and working hard. In 1996, Wendy’s gave me an opportunity to purchase my first restaurant. That’s when I embarked on nearly 30 years of service to the brand and our team members.
I’m proud of the work we have accomplished together with the Company and my fellow franchisees, and I’m excited that my children have the opportunity to continue the legacy we’ve built for years to come.”
President, Wendium of Florida
“We have been associated with the Wendy’s brand as a franchisee for over thirty years. The Wendy’s brand is one built around two key components: quality and great people.
Our customers have recognized Wendy’s as a quality product and we have been able to deliver superior service because of the support provided to us by the Wendy’s International team. We are associated with other brands, but without a doubt, none exceed Wendy’s level of support.“
