Next time you’re ordering a Frosty at the Wendy’s drive-thru, be sure to speak loudly enough so that the person taking your order can hear you. If not, she might just come outside and rip those cheap extensions out of your head.
In August, we wrote about how Wendy’s had begun testing a new kind of French fry made from skin-on potatoes and seasoned with sea salt. It looks like the tests were successful because the fast food chain is about to put the fries on the menu nationwide.
She’s been the (illustrated) face of the Wendy’s fast food empire for over 40 years, but Wendy Thomas — daughter of the chain’s founder Dave Thomas — has preferred to let that pigtailed drawing of her do the talking in the years since.
In the current issue of Consumer Reports, our science-minded siblings asked readers to rate the burgers at 18 different restaurant chains on a scale of 1-10.
Some of you who worked at Wendy’s during the early ’90s will probably have flashbacks when you check out these two very helpful — and incredibly funky — instructional videos on exactly how to fill up hot and cold beverage cups at the fast food chain.
An employee at a Wendy’s in Connecticut has been charged with second-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, threatening and breach of peace after allegedly pulling a knife and threatening to stab a co-worker. But he claims it was all for a good reason: He was upset at the other employee for serving bacon that had dropped on the floor.
Next time you’re grabbing some breakfast with your children at McDonald’s, Wendy’s or Burger King, you might want to pay attention to the nutritional information for the kids meals you order. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine just released its list of the Five Worst Fast Food Meals to highlight those G-rated meals with R-rated calorie counts.
For quite some time, fast-foodies have complained that the flimsy, translucent bacon on Wendy’s sandwiches like the Junior Bacon Cheeseburger paled in comparison to the Applewood-smoked bacon the eatery uses on the Bacon Deluxe or the Baconator. That’s all about to change as Wendy’s phases out the cheaper pork product. Unfortunately, that means you might end up paying more.
Most folks who successfully pull off a robbery at a fast food restaurant are happy with whatever cash they were able to make off with. But not one man in Atlanta, who wanted the employees of the Wendy’s he’d held up to know that he was disappointed with his haul — and that they’d better start selling more Baconators in preparation for his next heist.
How many times have you handed over your credit card at a fast-food joint and never thought twice about the security of your identity? Here’s some news that might give you pause — an employee at a Wendy’s in Washington state has been charged with using a card skimmer to steal the identities of 135 customers and racking up around $75,000 in fraudulent charges on those accounts.
Starting today, Wendy’s has decided to healthy-up its image with a new line of salads that uses, among other things, what the fast-food chain calls “real” ingredients. But if you think real ingredients means fewer calories, you’re mistaken
Over the weekend, we wrote about Wendy’s decision to pull a disco compilation CD included in kids’ meals because of supposed suggestive lyrics in a Donna Summer song. But now the disco diva is coming out swinging against the fast food chain, saying Wendy’s has burger grease in its ears.
While Domino’s has scrambled to re-imagine their pizza recipes and Pizza Hut continues to basically give away their pizzas for a pittance, it was Papa John’s who apparently made the best impression on eaters in the last year. The Kentucky-based chain has topped not only its pizzeria rivals, but all fast foods in an annual survey of customer satisfaction.
Donna Summer’s 1978 hit “Last Dance” won a Grammy and an Oscar, sold over 5 million copies, and reached Number 3 on the Billboard chart. But none of that matters to the tastemakers at Wendy’s. The fast-food chain has dropped the Karaoke Disco Fever CD — which included the Summer hit — from its kids meals because some customers apparently thought the line “when I’m bad I’m so, so bad” was actually “when I’m bad I’m so, so horny.” We can only wonder what they would have thought of “Love to Love You Baby.”
