The Square Deal Blog

Ever wonder why a Wendy’s® hamburger is square? Our founder Dave Thomas started Wendy’s in 1969 in Columbus, Ohio with a simple idea. Great food, served hot and fresh, by nice people.  


And the square burger thing? That came from his childhood role model, Grandma Minnie, who told him to Never Cut Corners. Interested in hearing more? We’ll use this blog to give you The Square Deal™ – our Wendy's company views on food, quality, culture, sustainability, children’s issues and doing our best to make Dave proud.
