For years, us Brits have been jealous of the level of fast food our friends across the pond have. Yeah, we’ve got McDonald’s, KFC, Five Guys and all that, but we’ve always had a soft spot for In-N-Out Burger, Chick-fil-A and, especially, Wendy’s.

So when we heard that Wendy’s was finally coming to the UK, we lost it – we absolutely, completely, 100% lost it.

Wendy’s, which is best known for its square burgers (including the Baconator) and Frosty Shakes, announced plans to open restaurants in the UK last summer, but it’s now been confirmed by Big Hospitality that two locations have officially been confirmed: Oxford and Reading. Plus, the fast food chain is also looking for spots in London!

A Wendy’s spokesperson told the publication: “I can confirm that we will be opening a Wendy’s restaurant in Oxford.”

“Our first location is in Reading and we are exploring additional opportunities in the London area.

“The brand is excited to enter the UK with company owned and operated restaurants this year, and we are looking for franchisees to grow with us across the United Kingdom.”

Now, this is not actually the first time Wendy’s have had restaurants in the UK – back in the 90s, a handful of Wendy’s in the UK, but the last one shut down in 2000.

So, please welcome back to the UK, our good pal Wendy and all her delicious square burgers!
