Live Action Quick Tips

Did you know….

The history of Wendy’s began with the dream of one man: Dave Thomas. Born in 1932 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, he was adopted at birth by Rex and Auleva Thomas. When Dave was 5 years old his adoptive mother died, and he spent a great deal of time with his grandmother while his father traveled around the country looking for work. At the age of 12 Dave found work at The Regas, a restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee. He lost the job, but this experience would have a lasting impact on him and his dream of starting up his own restaurant.

History of Wendy’s – The Beginning
History of Wendy’sAfter Dave lost his job at The Regis he got another job at Walgreens as a soda jerk, but that didn’t last either after his boss found out he was not yet 16 years old. These setbacks didn’t deter Dave however, and when he was 15 he and his father ended up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where Dave landed a job at the Hobby House Restaurant. His family would relocate but Dave stayed behind to continue working at the Hobby House Restaurant, dropping out of high school in the process.

At the age of 18 he joined the Army and when he came back resumed working in the Hobby House Restaurant. In 1956 Dave, together with his boss Phil Clauss, inaugurated The Ranch House Restaurant and it was at this point that he first met Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, and the three entered into an agreement and Dave ended up owning four KFC restaurants. During this time, the KFC branches were struggling, and Sanders, impressed with Dave’s work at the Hobby House restaurant, offered him a business partnership deal if he could turn them around. Not only did Dave manage to make a profit with the restaurants, but he made enough money to open more restaurants.

In 1968, at the age of 35, Dave sold his KFC restaurants back to Kentucky Fried Chicken and the following year, finally realized his long cherished dream of opening his very own restaurant. In 1969, Wendy’s Old-Fashioned Hamburger Restaurant was opened in Columbus, Ohio.(fastfoodmenuprices.com)

If you love fast food then I’m sure you have your favorites..

Taco Bell for those crunchy delicious tacos, McDonald’s for those ridiculous scientific created fries or Popeye’s for that delicious creole style chicken.

The main issue with fast food is the eerie feeling in your stomach you feel after. It is usually so good while you are gorging it down your throat but an an hour or so later you feel like gagging.

I usually feel like this with most fast food places but there is one place that I go for a fast food burger that makes me feel like I grilled the burger myself and tastes even better than most gourmet restaurants.

That’s Wendy’s Old Fashioned Burgers! Let’s talk about it..
