PremierLeague-News.Com - The American fast food giant is eyeing hundreds of UK sites in a bid to take on the burger big boys McDonald's and Five Guys in the year ahead
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It's a burger chain well known in the States, but now fast food giant Wendy's is aiming to make a big impression on the UK. The American diner has revealed plans to open a number of outlets in the UK over the coming year, as it aims to take on the burger big boys like McDonald's, Burger King and Five Guys. The restaurant firm, famed for its square shaped burgers and its beaming logo of a red-haired girl with pigtails and freckles, has dipped a toe in the UK market before, but blamed operating costs for departing 20 years ago. But bosses say the time is now right for a return, and have already signed a deal with delivery giant Uber Eats to capitalise on booming trade for burgers and takeaways over the past year.

Manchester is sure to be a key target for Wendy's, particularly with the recent success of home-grown burger restaurant Archie's, which was the fastest-growing independent UK restaurant group last year. Wendy's famously square-shaped burgers range from the Jr. Hamburger at 240 calories through to the awesome spectacle of the Bacon Jalepeno Triple Cheeseburger coming in at 1280 calories.

Wendy's chief development officer Abigail Pringle has said the firm is looking to cash in on the growth of fast food in the UK. She said: "The United Kingdom will be our beachhead to European expansion. We believe it is a growing market and it has lots of great growth ahead of it. "We also know that great American brands have been successful. Burger brands have been unbelievably successful there. But we believe that we can challenge those brands."
McDonald's has slashed the price of food on its menu to as little as £1.11
