Wendy's Coming Back To The UK

I read - in yesterday's news - that one of the United States' most popular fast food franchises is looking to open restaurants here in the UK.

Wendy's first restaurant, in its current expansion, will be in Reading followed by two in Oxford and Stratford. The articles claim that there are plans to build four hundred restaurants across the country.

I was not aware of this, but Wendy's did have business in the UK but left in the late 1990's.

Knowing this makes me worried that the company will pull out of the UK before a store is built here in my city of Cardiff.

The thing that makes me slightly more confident of Wendy's chances of sticking around this time is the fact that 1999 was a different time. Nowadays, people can order food online and get the products delivered to their door. 

Why do I care so much about the news? Well - I would really like to get my hands on one of Wendy's popular items: a Chocolate Frosty.

The website states that this milkshake is 'thick enough to use a spoon, smooth enough to use a straw.'

I haven't really looked at the burgers on offer other than the current special - a bourbon bacon cheeseburger. 

Wanting to try one of those would be getting far ahead of myself, though. I fully expect the specials to differ from country to country just like they do with other fast food businesses.
