The news follows the announcement of Wendy’s declaring their intention to enter the Australian market following a positive reaction from Australians when Wendy’s opened a pop-up for a day in 2021.

“Australia is a strategic market for long-term growth for Wendy’s. Flynn Restaurant Group has incredible experience in the restaurant space, and we are thrilled to expand our relationship with them. They have a strong leadership team, great culture, vast industry knowledge, success with our brand in the U.S., and we are confident that Flynn Restaurant Group is the right partner to unlock growth for Wendy’s in Australia,” Abigail Pringle, President, International and Chief Development Officer of The Wendy's Company.

This is the second brand Flynn will be franchising in Australia, having bought Pizza Hut in June.
