Wendy’s is set to open a restaurant in Stratford as the American burger giant makes a long-awaited return to the UK.

The fast-food chain opened its first UK restaurant in about two decades in Reading last week, with Stratford expected to be the first London location in this roll out.

Wendy’s has said four restaurants, including Stratford and Oxford, will follow the Reading launch in opening by the end of this year.

The Wendy’s Company president of international and chief development officer, Abigail Pringle, said the Reading branch is "very exciting" for Wendy’s

“Our team is working on opening additional restaurants across the country, starting in the south east, and establishing new franchisee partnerships to help us quickly scale and expand our brand presence, investing in the local economy and bringing more jobs to the area," she added.
