Wendy's Burgers coming back to the UK

"America's second largest burger chain is returning to the UK after 20 years with a promise to steal market share from rivals McDonald's and Burger King.

Wendy's, famous for square burgers, plans up to 400 outlets nationwide creating at least 12,000 jobs, although that could take many years, it said.

Wendy's would still be far smaller than McDonald's, which has 1,300 UK outlets.

The firm, which has also agreed a delivery deal with Uber Eats, left the UK complaining of high operating costs.

Abigail Pringle, Wendy's chief development officer, said in media interviews over the weekend that with the UK burger and takeaway market growing the time was right for a return."

Re: Wendy's Burgers coming back to the UK

I remember eating Wendy's burgers at the Piccadilly Circus branch in London, foiled wrapped bacon double cheeseburger, its was massive, but then I was a lot smaller.

Seeing this post for a second was hoping they would come to CH

anyone know if Wimpy still exists?

Well, the article does say the UK is going to be their springboard for expanding into Europe so ...

Re: Wendy's Burgers coming back to the UK

Wendy's is never entering the EU before this place closes down or changes it's name (unlikely):

You're forgetting that the self-importance of the Brits leads them to cute fallacy that the world gives a damn about their particularities
