Own a Deliciously
Different Franchise
Opportunity in Québec

At Wendy’s, it’s our mission to Delight Every Customer. We like to think that we’ve made our founder, Dave Thomas, proud by carrying on his legacy and growing one of the most successful restaurant companies in the world, where customers can enjoy fresh, high quality, delicious food in a welcoming environment.

Over the past few years, we’ve made some changes to suit a new generation of customers, but we’ve never lost sight of the principles of our founder or the values that have made Wendy’s so successful. Now, after careful research and planning, we’ve identified Québec as a growth market for development and we’re looking for experienced Québécois multi-unit foodservice operators to grow in Québec City, Montréal and the surrounding areas.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
"Growing up, Wendy's was always our go-to QSR. The brand has stayed relevant with our parents' generation and even now with millennials. It's an exciting time to be part of a brand that is growing and pushing boundaries in this industry and across Canada."

Why Québec?

Québec is a top-performing province in terms of sales, boasting two of the top-10 most populous cities in the country and one of Canada’s strongest economies. Because of that, Wendy’s is seeking experienced Québécois multi-unit operators to develop within the province.

Since 1978, we’ve served Québécois food they love in a place they love to go. It’s The Wendy’s Way – and it’s made us one of the most successful QSR restaurant franchises in the world.

Commitment to Canada

Although Wendy's was founded in the United States in 1969, our first international restaurant opened just seven years later in Ontario, Canada. And just one year after that, we established Wendy's Restaurants of Canada (WROC), a Canadian–run subsidiary of Wendy's International that benefits from the strength of a global leader while taking a uniquely Canadian approach to business.

Wendy's Canada is a strong supporter of the Canadian economy, sourcing our products – like the fresh Canadian beef and chicken in all of our delicious salads and sandwiches – from Canadian farmers.

Our proven operational model has been adapted to suit the Canadian culture and economic landscape and, because our success is based on your success, the WROC team will be here to support you through every step to own and operate your Wendy's restaurants.

When I was 8 years old, I dreamed that I would one day own the best restaurant in the world. My restaurant would serve great tasting hamburgers made just the way you like them, and all of the customers would love the food and come back again and again.
