Number of Wendy's restaurants in the U.S. 2011-2018 In 2018, U.S.-based quick service chain Wendy’s accounted for a total of 5,810 stores in the United States, an increase of approximately 50 units from the previous year. Out of these, only 353 remained company-owned with establishments becoming increasingly operated by franchisees. The number of Wendy’s restaurants in the U.S. has remained fairly stable over the past seven years, the figure always amounting to around six and a half thousand.

Is Wendy's an international brand?

In its native country of the U.S., Wendy’s ranked in the top 10 in terms of units when compared to other leading QSR chains - included in the ranking were other large global brands such as Burger King and Pizza Hut. Wendy’s placed eighth on the list being just outnumbered by Taco Bell, which accounted for nearly six and a half thousand units in the United States. However, dominating the QSR circuit was Subway, operating and franchising a total of nearly 26 thousand restaurants. While Wendy's is established in its home nation it is also working on expanding to international locations and accounted for a total of 6,711 restaurants worldwide in 2018. The company now operates and franchises more than five hundred restaurants in international locations – the largest proportion of which were based in Indonesia. Other countries Wendy’s has expanded to include Puerto Rico, Japan and the Philippines
