Food & Lifestyle | Wendy’s & I Go Way Back

At this point my affinity for comfort food, specifically burgers, is not news and I’m constantly thinking of my next sit down. Although we all have our favourites whether they  specialize in speed (but sacrifice quality), give us those limited edition releases or provide that nostalgia of growing up – we all have our reasons.


My personal relationship with Wendy’s goes back to high school (S/O to Dante Aligheri Academy!) where for two years in a row my third period lunch would be spent hanging out with friends at the Lawrence location right behind our school. Those two year lunch periods were spent laughing, crying & eating with the likes of Vanessa, Sophie, Sandra, Jackie, Cymone & boyfriend who shall remain nameless were memorable moments – memorable moments because I spent quality time over food that brought us together. Do I still see and spend time with those mentioned? Maybe not as often but thanks to the memories we shared – Wendy’s holds a special place in my heart.

But what was it about Wendy’s that kept us coming back? I mean we had a variety of other options within walking distance from very recognized establishments but they didn’t quite cut it…Lord knows they didn’t have a Frosty nor that distinguishable juicy beef patty that we came to appreciate. It was that quality of beef that I now know kept us coming back for more.


At the time I wasn’t aware that Wendy’s was founded on the idea of quality, and that they’ve always maintained that fresh tastes better.

“Three out of four Canadians who eat beef believe that fresh tastes better,” according to a recent survey commissioned by Wendy’s Canada.


While consumer expectations continue to evolve, Wendy’s is committed to delivering the taste and quality Canadians have come to expect: 100% fresh Canadian beef. And evolve they have, if you were to have asked 17 year old Julio why the importance of supporting local is so crucial he would have shrugged his shoulders (BRAT! I know).

“When it comes to beef, the passion for ‘local’ continues to grow with 92 per cent of Canadians indicating they think it’s important to purchase local” according to a recent survey commissioned by Wendy’s Canada.

NOW, as a savvy educated consumer; I value quality and the importance of supporting locally sourced products  – Wendy’s has made sure that one hundred per cent of its beef is raised in Canada and served in every hamburger across the country.

Here’s the best part – I want you guys in on the always fresh, never frozen goods by giving you a chance to win a $30 (CDN) Wendy’s giftcard!

    This post made me so hungry! I still remember when Wendy’s first opened in the small town I grew up in. It was such a big deal that their burgers were square! Even after all these years, the JBC is still my favorite menu item.
