Franchise raised more than $350,000 for the Foundation in 2019
By the Wendy’s of Bowling Green team
We believe in giving back and genuinely support Dave Thomas’ vision that every child will have a permanent home and loving family.
That is why we “Go All Out to Sell Out” Boo! Books and Frosty Key Tags. The Wendy’s of Bowling Green franchise raised $6,600 per restaurant for a total of more than $350,000 in 2019. We wanted to raise the bar and encourage other franchisees to do the same.
We are honored to follow the example of Mike O’Malley, who serves on the Foundation’s board of trustees. When he shared the Foundation’s mission and stories of the many children who now have loving homes, our team was enthusiastic to reach our fundraising goals.
Wendy’s exists because of Dave Thomas, and what better way for us, as employees and successful franchisees, to continue his legacy. We want to work hard to fulfill his dream for children waiting to be adopted from foster care. As he stated in his book, Dave’s Way, “If you had the blessing of a good home life yourself, then you do owe something back.”
Wendy’s of Bowling Green owns and operates Wendy’s® restaurants in Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee.
