WORLD’S SOUTHERNMOST WENDY’S TO OPEN IN DUNEDIN


Thursday August 28, 2014.

Wendy's lovers in Dunedin will have their first taste of Wendy's very soon!  The world's southernmost Wendy's is to open in Dunedin, with ground works now underway at the South Dunedin site.  We've been looking for a site for quite some time, but it has been a case of being patient and finding the right location.  The new restaurant will boast cafe style seating and group seating for larger dining parties, a Drive Thru and a new two-sided grill system that cooks the meat faster and enhances food safety.  The region's first Wendy's outlet at 369 Andersons Bay Road, will also mean the creation of 50 new jobs for crew and six for management.  We have big expectations for Dunedin, with our Christchurch restaurant setting a new world recordfor sales in it's first seven days, which has yet to be beaten.
