    • Mix and match a stale microwaved product, not at Wendays
      How can you even think of comparing BK to WEN with microwaved tomatoes and lettuce?
      WEN beef a higher quality, BK beef includes grissle and vein material

    • yea BUT microwaved, under a heat lamp, not fresh, imagine this pal, a microwaved burger queen (king) whopper with hot wilted lettuce, onion, tomato YUCK!!!!!!!! Never microwaved at WEN, and the beef is fresh never frozen, WEN burgers are second to none, only one coming close is Hardees (Carl Jr) for you on the west coast

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      Wendy's on Wednesday said that while the chain's sales trends and margin improved last quarter, its sales softened when it pulled back on the marketing for that menu.

      "We are refining our promotional calendar for the rest of this year ... with modestly more emphasis on price-value," Chief Executive Emil Brolick said on a conference call.

      Wendy's North America same-store sales, or sales at restaurants open at least 15 months, rose 1% at company-owned restaurants and edged up 0.6% at franchise locations in the first quarter.

      Wendy's on Wednesday reported its first-quarter earnings fell 83%, hindered by restaurant remodeling costs as it tries to catch up to McDonald's with a more modern, sleek look.

      So far this quarter, Wendy's new flatbread grilled chicken sandwiches helped sales growth, Mr. Brolick said. "But that growth has been offset by some of the [market] share losses on the price-value end of the business," he added.
