It really is
Wendy's Fast Food Restaurant Chain Founder:
After working directly with Colonel Harland Sanders in Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises, Dave Thomas started his own fast food franchise business in 1969, which he named after his daughter, Melinda Lou (nicknamed "Wenda," which was her toddler pronunciation of her own name).
Wendy's headquarters are located in the city where the company's first restaurant was opened - Columbus, OH.
