DUBLIN, Ohio - Wendy's is an international fast food chain that mainly sells hamburgers. It was founded in 1969, and currently has 6,650 restaurants world-wide.
The executives of the hamburger giant have expressed a desire to rename the company. The franchise was founded by Dave Thomas who named it after his fourth child, Melinda Lou "Wendy" Thomas.
The company's top officials have been considering changing the restaurant chain's name from Wendy's to Windy's.
Proctor H. Fairweiser, 59, an executive vice-president with the hamburger chain stated that they feel that the name Windy is more modern sounding and besides it has the word Win in it.
He noted that he feels that changing the name to Windy will have more of a positive impact on the patrons who will visit the restaurant with the winning name.
Fairweiser also pointed out that they hope to secure the rights to the Association's 1967 hit song, Windy to use in their commercials.
SIDENOTE: The board of directors will be meeting on Monday, December 2, 2013, and at that time they will take a vote to change the name from Wendy's to Windy's.
