This purchase is part of The Wendy’s Company’s System Optimisation initiative to reduce the company-operated restaurant ownership to approximately 5% of the total system.

The acquisition will be funded with available cash on hand.

Located in the Raleigh-Durham metropolitan area, the acquired restaurants will be owned and operated by NPC Quality Burgers.
