Marketing No Comments

Wendy’s burger chain has announced a return to the UK with new restaurants creating thousands of new hospitality jobs.

The return will see circa 400 new restaurant openings, with 30 to 50 employees per restaurant creating 12,000 jobs.

Wendy’s exited the UK QSR market 21 years ago citing high property costs as an operational barrier. Now, it will use the UK launch as a springboard for further expansion in Europe, starting with company-owned stores before adding a franchise model.
