Wendy’s announced today it has crossed the 500th store milestone in the continuing expansion of its new breakfast menu.
A number of new breakfast locations have been added in recent weeks, and Wendy’s expects to expand breakfast to nearly 750 U.S. and Canadian restaurants by the end of third quarter of 2007.
Our breakfast expansion is on track with where we had planned to be at this stage,” said Wendy’s Chief Executive Officer and President Kerrii Anderson. “Reaching the 500-store level is a milestone, but far more gratifying is the repeat business we’re experiencing and the continuing positive feedback from customers about our fresh, high quality breakfast menu.”
Wendy’s breakfast menu boasts several signature items as both a la carte and combo meal options. Included are the Steak and Egg Breakfast sandwich, a Grande Breakfast Burrito and the Buttermilk Frescuit.
