"The demand for convenient delivery solutions means we must look for opportunities beyond our traditional restaurant formats, especially in dense urban areas," said Abigail Pringle, Wendy's President, International and Chief Development Officer by adding that with this partnership, they want to see their brand and quest to reach more customers in more ways.

REEF's network of delivery kitchens, in over 30 cities around the world, helps reduce traffic congestion and pollution by bringing food closer to the customer. REEF Kitchens are conveniently placed and mean shorter deliveries in your neighborhood.

"We are proud to partner with Wendy's to show how a restaurant brand can successfully and conveniently scale with REEF's delivery kitchen platform to reach more customers faster and with Wendy's world famous commitment to quality food and service," said Michael Beacham, President of REEF Kitchens.
