Wendy's campaign in the North America started on January 9, 1984. The famous line said by Clara Peller quickly entered the American pop culture. Wendy's hamburgers were promoted with very high quality.
The most fabulous item in the whole chain is Wendy's chili. Horrible story is connected with it. The story is about the fingertip, which was found in the bowl with chili by one of the consumers. It occurred later to be a part of this woman acquaintance's finger. Another popular thing is Wendy's frosty dairy desserts, its fresh and never frozen ground beef, and its making of all sandwich items fresh and to order. Very interesting thing is that Wendy's burgers are square, though on round rolls.

It is not very healthy, but can be acceptable from time to time. What really makes Wendy's better than others is their wraps. Wendy's Fresh Stuffed Pitas lead the line-up of all the wrappings. Unfortunately, most fast food chains think that salad is synonymous with iceberg lettuce. Wendy's attitude is principally different.
