It all started with Dave who was taught by Grandma Minnie Sinclair about doing things right, treating people well and important lessons about quality and service. Born Dave Thomas on July 2, 1932 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, he was adopted by Rex and Auleva at six weeks old.
Rolling up his sleeves, Dave dropped out of school at the age of 12 and began working full time in a restaurant and then immersed himself into the business, working and learning hard from mentors while holding true to the philosophy taught by his grandmother.
Dave opened his first Wendy’s® restaurant in 1969 in Columbus, Ohio. The restaurant was named after one of his five children. He was adamant not to cut corners from the start hence the square hamburger was born. Wendy’s® quickly became a household name since then and grew into an established franchise serving up a variety of fresh, high quality and great tasting products that is loved by people from all around the world.
