Wendy's founder was orphan Dave Thomas, who named the business after his daughter. The first store opened in 1969 in Columbus, OH, according to the company's website. Thomas supported programs for children as his business prospered. He died in 2002 at age 70.

The company took a financial beating nationwide in March 2005 when a San Jose, CA woman put a severed human fingertip into her Wendy's chili and claimed it was from the restaurant. The disgusting hoax was uncovered and she was prosecuted, and jailed. But prior to the discovery, Wendy's lost millions of dollars in business as customers avoided the chain.

Wendy's was known as the first hamburger fast food restaurant to add a salad bar, back in the 1970s, and proved successful.

Cheeburger Cheeburger has absolutely the very best burgers ever and to accompany the burger, the freshest, tastiest, melt in your mouth goodness, onion rings. I brought a group of eight women friends for lunch and we all loved it. From someone who never goes to 'fast food' places, I could do this at least twice a month except for pounds you'd put on!
