    You may be right. How times have changed

    Even though they were bought out, the corporate hq never left Dublin.

    The full HQ never moved, but a lot of the executive jobs did. Those are coming back:

    Remember when a lot of Wendy’s were built with the front seating area lowered two steps into the ground?

    Yeah, those were the good old days. ;)

    Yup, they did that, too, to “update”, as did Rax, both touting their salad bars. Ah, well, I still think themes are kind of fun.

    ^ The Superbar. I always like trying to figure out where the Superbar was when I’m in an older Wendy’s.

    Full details of “Project Gold Hamburger:”

    Dave’s Hot ‘N Juicy, named after late Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas. The burger — with extra cheese, a thicker beef patty, a buttered bun, and hold the mustard, among other changes — will be served in restaurants starting Monday.

    Saw the new Wendy’s logo on their West Broad location yesterday; placing of type seems a bit ill-fitting and toward the bottom.

    Along with new look for Wendy.

    Sadly, she seems not to be a true redhead.

    Not liking the type on the new logo at all. The original logo is classic and didn’t need updated or “hippified.”

    I guess it’s not Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers anymore

    It’s so bad it looks like bad photoshop. Is that font Comic Sans, italic?

    But it’s not just the font… the scale & spacing of the script on the sign is completely wack.

    The Wendy’s girl in the logo looks updated. I’m not bothered by that. But I am wondering the thought process behind the logo because there seems to be 2 ad campaigns going on, one with old, original Wendy talking about her dad and what he created, and young, hip Wendy introducing new menu items with her hip friends. Surely they could have tried updating the classic to embody body both ideas rather then scraping the whole thing?
