On November 15, 1969, Dave Thomas opened the first Wendy’s in Columbus, Ohio. What started as just one hamburger joint grew over the span of 50 years to become a fixture in the fast-food restaurant industry, with over 6,700 locations today.
In celebration of its 50th birthday, Wendy’s has added two new frozen treats to its menu. The first is a Birthday Cake Frosty, which consists of the chain’s famous vanilla Frosty mixed with the flavor of a classic birthday cake.
Wendy’s has also added a Birthday Cake Frosty Cookie Sundae to its menu, which the chain describes as “a birthday party in a cup.” This dessert features the new Birthday Cake Frosty topped with sugar cookie pieces and sprinkles. YUM!
Both of these celebratory treats are available at participating Wendy’s locations for a limited time only.
