Eager customers line-up to celebrate the second Wendy's restaurant opening in Buenos Aires, Argentina on January 21. Desarrollos Gastronomicos is the local Wendy's franchisee.
There are more than 6,500 Wendy’s restaurants currently in operation in the U.S. and 27 countries and territories worldwide. Since January 2009, we have aggressively laid the groundwork for international expansion of Wendy’s with new restaurant development announcements in Singapore, the Middle East and North Africa, the Russian Federation, the Eastern Caribbean, Argentina, the Philippines and Japan. We believe that we have the opportunity to open more than 8,000 Wendy’s restaurants outside of North America.
New market expansion and further development within existing markets will continue to be dominant drivers of Wendy’s worldwide strategy over the coming years. Ultimately, we believe that earnings generated from international markets will be a significant component of our ability to generate long-term value for our stockholders.
We are excited for the opportunity to bring Wendy’s high-quality products to new customers around the globe.
