Wendy's Franchisees Form Association

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 6, 2006 -- The Old Fashioned Franchise Association is pleased to announce the formation of a Franchise Association designed to represent the interests of the U.S. franchisees of Wendy's International, Inc. as we work with management of Wendy's International to restore historic margins and sales trends for the entire Wendy's System. Currently representing over 760 restaurants, with members spread across the continental United States, the Association is a non-discriminatory body devoted to representing the interests of all Franchisees, from the single restaurant owner to those well in excess of 100 restaurants. The OFFA offers its members a forum to discuss strategic vision, supply chain, distribution, legal, financial and operational issues and a platform to share these concerns with management, ensuring the voice of the franchisees is heard as we pursue our common goal of strengthening both Franchisee and total System restaurant performance through the adoption of a "best practices" approach.

An informational meeting open to any and all Franchisees interested in learning more about the benefits available to members of the OFFA has been scheduled for the 24th and 25th of April, 2006 at the Rio Resort and Hotel, 3700 West Flamingo Road, in Las Vegas, Nevada, commencing at 2:00 pm local time on April 24th. For reservations, please contact the Rio at (800) 888-1808. For the meeting agenda and additional information, please send us an e-mail to

The interim Board of Directors and member Franchisees of the OFFA welcome the three new members of the Board of Directors of Wendy's International who have recently joined our System in March of 2006. We look forward to working closely with both old and new members of the Board of Directors and management of Wendy's International, Inc. as we strive to restore Wendy's preeminence as the highest quality QSR System serving the American consumer.
