Wendy’s, the third most popular burger chain behind McDonald’s and Burger King, was bought by the shaved roast beef chain Arby’s today for $2.34 billion. The family of Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s, is not happy about the deal.
“It’s a very sad day for Wendy’s, and our family. We just didn’t think this would be the outcome.”
That is what one daughter had to say about it and “Wendy” herself is said to be taking it very hard as well.Â I am cautiously rejoicing for the simple fact that Wendy’s picked up and left town (2 locations) without really letting me anybody know not too long ago.Â I am hoping that since there are too many three Arby’s locations here, maybe we will see a Wendy’s brought back.Â I will continue to rock the Dane Cook BK Lounge and Mc’D's until the Spicy Chicken makes its way back into my life.
Also note to Spanky… If you ever wanted to start a fast food restaurant, now is the time to strike.Â Triarc is apparently buying up all the fast food joints that end in “y’s” so if you couldÂ get “Spanky’s” ready, maybe you could cash in too?
