The Wendy's Company President and Chief Executive Officer

Wendy’s® has built our business on quality over the past 50 years. We currently serve customers at more than 6,700 Wendy's restaurants globally, with more than 92% located in North America. Our Food Vision is simple – to serve fresh, honest, craveable meals that have been made right. We are best known for our made-to-order square hamburgers; using fresh, never frozen beef*; freshly-prepared salads with hand-chopped lettuce; and other signature items like chili, baked potatoes and the Frosty® dessert.

We believe that making food right means doing the right thing every step of the way.
Dave Thomas founded Wendy's based on a set of core values, including “Quality is our Recipe”, “Do the Right Thing” and “Give Something Back”, which serve as timeless guideposts for our employees and franchisees. As we continue to grow globally, Dave's legacy will always guide the decisions we make and have shaped our vision to become the world’s most thriving and beloved restaurant brand.

Consistent with our values, we believe it is not only possible but our responsibility to deliver business success while at the same time prioritizing the well-being of our employees, customers, communities and the world around us. We are focused on making continuous progress on our priorities, making a real difference and increasing transparency with all stakeholders. To that end, moving forward, we will report updates related to environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance on this website.
