Wendy’s Quits Japan!
Unbelievably cool news: Wendy’s is closing every last one of its restaurants in Japan this month. An analyst at Daily Finance writes:
…the surprising announcement about Wendy’s in Japan leads me to suspect that profits and sales in the past month or two have slipped so sharply that [its ownership] may be pessimistic about the continued success for Americanized fast food in the country.
Strong evidence that the hamburger era is drawing to a close. Link.
