Building equitable workplaces and communities

Wendy's team members

We want Wendy’s to be a great place to eat, and a great place to work and build a career. We support our Company employees by providing competitive benefits, recognition programs and resource groups. We’re proud to share five areas we are focused on to increase the representation of underrepresented populations among our Company’s leadership and management, as well as the diversity of our franchisees.


We strive to bring our values to the communities where we do business. We know we cannot achieve change on our own, but we intend to be part of the solution. From our longstanding support of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® to establishing community-based partnerships to advance social justice, we’re always striving to do the right thing.

"Demonstrating an inclusive mindset is essential to being a great Wendy’s team member and is identified as one of our five Leadership Success Factors. Providing support to others different than you and making everyone feel welcome are essential attributes of our culture.

The Square Deal

We'll use this space to give you The Square Deal™ — our views on food, quality, culture, foster care adoption, and doing our best to make Dave proud.
