Ebene News – GB – Wendy’s confirms arrival in UK

US fast food giant Wendy’s is set to open in the UK later this year, the company said

The chain revealed plans to open on UK shores last summer, but just announced the opening of its first branches in Reading and Oxford

The chain previously operated around 10 locations in the UK, but chose to leave in 2000 and focus on its operations in North America

Now he’s finally definitely coming back to the UK after hosting a one-day pop-up in London in 2017

A spokesperson for Wendy’s told Big Hospitality: “I can confirm that we will be opening a Wendy’s restaurant in Oxford

“Our first location is in Reading and we are exploring other opportunities in the London area

“The brand is excited to enter the UK with restaurants owned and operated by the company this year, and we are looking for franchisees to grow with us across the UK”

In 2017, Twitter user Carter Wilkerson went viral for tweeting the brand asking for a year of freebies

“A man needs his nuggets [sic],” he wrote in a tweet that has become one of the most retweeted comments in Twitter history

A spokesperson for Wendy’s said at the time, “We weren’t expecting Carter’s response, and we couldn’t anticipate the overwhelming support he received.”

The company actually ended up providing Wilkerson with enough free chicken nuggets to last the year
