Here is what Wendy’s has to say on some important questions posed:-
Why Sector 29?
We love Sector 29! It’s one of the bustling markets in Gurgaon and we felt it was a good place to launch the brand. We’re all about personalized local restaurants and Sector 29 is one of our favorites with very discriminating customers who will help us improve our offering.
How are your drinks different?
We’re more like a café than a regular fast food joint. We have a really big range of hot and cold drinks. In our coffee we use 100% Arabica beans in our coffee and you can add vanilla or hazelnut shots. In our cold drinks range we have fruit ales made with Monin natural flavours including lychee, cucumber and watermelon. And of course we have all the great Coke line up (and you can even have cherry or vanilla shots in your Coke)
Why are your burgers square?
Because Dave Thomas figured out this was the best way to cook them! It also reminded him of a favorite restaurant when he was growing up. In India, we’re the first Wendy’s market to do square patties…AND, square buns. We also insist that the patty is the same size (or only a teeny bit less) than the bun because it’s too disappointing to have big buns that disguise a small patty! All in all, we don’t cut corners.
Did you know the logo of Wendy’s has a hidden meaning? If you look closely at the logo under her chin, you’ll notice the collar reads as “Mom”
Wendy’s wants to give you an idea that the food it serves is like your home cooked meal made by your mom. Delicious and fresh!
They say it was unintentional, but well eating here at Wendy’s, It sure does seem fresh and as if it was made with all the love they could muster!
