This American Burger Chain Will Open 700 Locations
After announcing its footprint will expand by a whopping 1,200 new locations by 2025, this famous American burger chain plans on expanding to 700 locations worldwide. So which major national burger chain plans on expanding?
Wendy's, of course! Wendy's execs recently revealed that some 700 locations are slated to open in the form of ghost kitchens. The plan will make Wendy's the largest ghost kitchen operator among American fast-food chains, according to Restaurant Business.
The restaurant-less, delivery-only facilities will be scattered across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. By 2025, Wendy's plans on operating as many as 8,500 to 9,000 locations globally—a major jump from the company's current 6,800 locations.
In partnership with operator Reef Kitchens, Wendy's plans on opening as many as 50 of these ghost kitchen locations by the end of the year. The remaining 650 will be spread evenly across the following four years, according to reports.
