Did you know that Wendy’s is a staunchly pro-life fast food company?
Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas was adopted, so his passion in life was based on finding good homes for needy kids.
While other companies are boasting about their support of abortion and Planned Parenthood, Wendy’s is fervently working to push adoption as a better option.
And we love that!
As an adoptee himself, Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas always held the cause of adoption close to his heart. He credited his summers in Maine with his grandmother as teaching him the value of hard work and perseverance, and his time eating in local restaurants with his father after his adoptive mother died that made him value restaurants as a place of sharing and family closeness.
These core values led Dave Thomas to found one of the most successful fast food chains in the US, and through his success in business, spurred him on to philanthropic advocacy. He made several trips to the White House to raise awareness about adoption and to advocate for adoption benefits for federal employees and others. In 1990, Dave was invited to the White House again to be a spokesman for a national adoption awareness campaign. But Dave wanted to do more, and in 1992 he founded the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, which has been called the “biggest game in adoption today,” and receives high ratings on Charity Navigator.
While celebrities are loudly screaming their support for Planned Parenthood and abortion, organizations like the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption are quietly doing the hard work of helping vulnerable children, women, and families in need. Perhaps celebrities should take note and spend less energy telling women they must have abortion to be successful, and spend more time and effort doing the work of supporting women and children whose mothers chose life.

So, you can imagine how thrilled we were to hear that Wendy’s will be adding 20 thousand new jobs next year, as they roll out a band new breakfast menu.
Wendy’s will start serving breakfast across the United States next year.
It’s a big undertaking for the fast food company. Wendy’s plans to hire about 20,000 US employees for the initiative, the company said Monday.
Breakfast is an important meal for fast food chains. More people prepare breakfast at home than any other meal, and the morning remains the only growth market for the fast food industry, according to research group NPD.
Currently, Wendy’s offers breakfast, including a bacon sandwich and a honey butter chicken biscuit, at about 300 locations. The nationwide launch “provides incredible growth opportunities,” said Todd Penegor, the company’s president and CEO, in a statement.
Menu innovations have helped boost Wendy’s sales. A number of new menu items — including a new $5 Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger, a new line of chicken sandwiches and a $5 meal deal called the Biggie Bag — helped boost first-quarter sales at North American stores open at least a year.
Breakfast may help drive growth, but it’s a costly endeavor. The company expects to spend about $20 million to serve breakfast throughout the country, and is lowering its 2019 financial outlook. Shares dipped about 3% after the market closed Monday on the news. [News 3]
When you’re in the mood for fast food, please think about spending your hard-earned money at Wendy’s, because in a sea of darkness and depravity, they’re doing the Lord’s work.
