Wendy’s Co. to bring 170 jobs to Dublin by late next year
December 9, 2011 by Mark
The Wendy’s Co., one of the three largest international food chains, announced in August that it will be consolidating the company’s world headquarters in Dublin late next year. The famous food chain, founded in November of 1969 by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio, moved its corporate headquarters to dublin in 2006. Following Wendy’s merger with Triarc in 2008, the company has been operating its corporate offices in Dublin and Atlanta, Georgia for the past three years and create the Wendy’s/Arby’s Group.. In July of this year, the Roark Capital Group purchased the Arby’s Restaurant Group, breaking apart the Wendy’s/Arby’s Group. As a result of this split, the Wendy’s Co. has made the decision to close its Atlanta support center and relocate 170 jobs to the Dublin area in August 2012.
When large corporations and companies merge or split, it creates a need to restructure operations and give a face-lift to many forms of printed materials, such as business cards, coupon flyers and stationery. Printing companies in the Dublin area are able to supply stationery printing, business card printing and a variety of other printing services to incoming businesses or companies that are undergoing a restructuring process.
Wendy’s president, Emil Brolick, stated that it would be difficult to lose the outstanding employees they currently have in Atlanta, but the decision to consolidate to the Dublin headquarters was made in an effort to join the two support centers in one location.
