With close to 400 establishments, Wendy’s made it into a ranking of the leading restaurant chains in Canada by number of units, placing 16th. At the top of the list was Canadian franchisor and operator the MTY Group with nearly six thousand units in 2018. Despite operating by far the largest number of restaurants in Canada, the MTY Group was surpassed by Canadian QSR chain Tim Hortons in terms of gross sales. In 2018, Tim Hortons reported gross sales of nearly nine billion Canadian dollars. Comparatively, Wendy’s Restaurants of Canada Inc. accounted for gross sales of around 650 million Canadian dollars.    

 Which QSR chains do Canadian’s prefer? 

When asked which quick service restaurant they go to, if any, nearly 35 percent of the Canadian’s surveyed stated they go to Wendy’s. However, McDonald’s was the QSR people tended to frequent the most, with over 67 percent of the respondents stating it was the restaurant chain they turn to for fast food.
