American burger chain Wendy’s has announced plans to enter the Irish market as it continues to expand across Europe.

The company is looking for well-established franchisee candidates that have strong operations experience, local development expertise and an ambition to grow quickly.

With more than 7,000 restaurants worldwide, Wendy’s has 25 restaurants currently operating in the UK, ten of which are company-operated.

Abigail Pringle, President, International & Chief Development Officer of The Wendy’s Company said that as they continue to expand their international footprint, we are focused on building long-term relationships with franchisees in Ireland.

“We are committed to serving high-quality, great tasting food, and intend to offer our wide range of craveable menu options, including our famous square hamburgers made with fresh beef patties and served hot off the grill.”

The fast food restaurant is best known for its made-to-order square hamburgers, freshly prepared salads, and other signature items like chili, baked potatoes and the Frosty dessert.
