Site of First Wendy's Restaurant
Text, side A
Dave Thomas realized his boyhood dream when he opened his first hamburger restaurant on this site on November 15, 1969. Thomas changed the image of fast food by serving fresh, not frozen hamburgers, hot off the grill with a choice of toppings in a clean comfortable setting. From this location, Wendy's became one of the largest restaurant chains in the world. It all began with Thomas's guiding principle "Quality is Our Recipe" and his dream of serving a "hot 'n juicy" hamburger.
