The history of Wendy's
Wendy's was founded in 1969 by Dave Thomas. The first location he opened was in Columbus, Ohio, and focused on selling good old-fashioned hamburgers and milkshakes. The restaurant was named after his daugther, Melinda Lou "Wendy" Thomas.
The first Wendy's opened in 1972, when they also aired their first television commercials. By 1976, the chain had 500 different restaurants! Three years later, Wendy's opened its first European restaurant in Munich, Germany.
Today, there are over 6,500 Wendy's locations worldwide, still serving a similar menu to Dave Thomas's very first restaurant.
Why are Wendy's burgers square?
Wendy's hamburgers are easy to tell apart from the rest of the fast food pack - they're square shaped, rather than the traditional round patty form.
But why are they in the shape of a square? It turns out there's a very good reason for this!
Founder Dave Thomas was inspired to open Wendy's by a restaurant in his hometown called Kewpee Hamburgers. There, they made square burger patties so that the corners of the patty would stick out from the bun. That meant customers could see right away how high quality the beef was.
Thomas liked the idea so much that he incorporated it into his own restaurant. Today, the square hamburger is a Wendy's icon (even though it wasn't originally their idea).
Fun fact: apart from square burgers, Wendy's is also the first fast food chain that added a salad bar.
