The Wendy's Company WEN is scheduled to report third-quarter 2021 results on Nov 10, before the opening bell. In the last reported quarter, the company’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 50%.

Q3 Estimates

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings is pegged at 19 cents per share, flat year over year.

The consensus mark for revenues stands at $471.4 million, suggesting an improvement of 4.2% from the year-ago quarter.

Factors to Note

Wendy’s third-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from increased focus on menu innovation, technological upgrades and international expansion. The company’s emphasis on Breakfast daypart offerings might have contributed to growth. It has also been benefiting from its marketing efforts, high-quality offerings, repeat ordering and high customer satisfaction levels.

Robust global same-restaurant sales growth may get reflected in the to-be-reported quarter’s results. Increased customer counts and higher average checks are likely to have driven the company’s margin.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Franchise royalty revenue and fees is pegged at $137 million, indicating an improvement of 17.1% year over year. The consensus mark for Advertising funds revenues stands at $98 million, suggesting growth of 15.3% year over year.
