Wendy's is a chain of restaurants founded in Ohio and specializing in fast food products, especially hamburgers. Wendy's is famous for selling square, rather than the standard round hamburgers. Competitors of Wendy's include the much bigger McDonald's corporation and the Burger King corporation.
Wendy's was founded by Christian businessman Dave Thomas and named for one of his daughters. As Thomas was adopted as an infant, the company has historically supported adoption causes.
