Wendy’s is said to be coming back to the UK.
More than two decades after it served fast food to British customers, the fast food giant has committed to opening in Reading and Oxford.
Expansion into London is also a potential for the American chain.
A spokesperson told Big Hospitality: “I can confirm that we will be opening a Wendy’s restaurant in Oxford.
“Our first location is in Reading and we are exploring additional opportunities in the London area.
“The brand is excited to enter the UK with company owned and operated restaurants this year, and we are looking for franchisees to grow with us across the United Kingdom.”
Previously, Wendy’s had 10 outlets across the UK in the 1990s.
Two of these were in London’s Shaftesbury Avenue and Oxford Circus.
But when they shut up shop, high operation and property costs were cited as reasons behind the closures.
When Wendy’s does re-launch in the UK, we can probably expect a big social media push.
The fast food giant is known for clapping back on Twitter with witty responses.
It's challenged the likes of rival McDonald’s, chicken chain KFC and chef Gordon Ramsay in recent months.
And back in 2017, Carter Wilkerson went viral for begging Wendy’s for a year’s worth of free nuggets.
His post ended up being one of the most retweeted posts on social media.
