Wendy’s Return to the UK

The recent announcement of Wendy’s return to the UK has sparked excitement over the brands arrival and their infamous square burgers. 2nd June 2021 marked the much anticipated opening of Wendy’s Reading restaurant.

Desco was appointed to deliver the USA – UK localisation of the mechanical and electrical design engineering services and a multi-site rollout of restaurants across the UK.

The works comprise preparation of performance design specifications and drawings for In Line and Food Court outlets together with a detailed design for a prototype freestanding unit suitable for the UK market.

The project includes a full review of the current UK prototype design undertaking a localisation exercise on the design and code compliance for In-Line, Food Court and Freestanding Units.

The first restaurant opened 2nd June 2021, the first since the brand left the UK 20 years ago and is located in Reading. As well as some of their well known classics, Wendy’s will be bringing new options to the menu which have been tailored to the UK market.
