Wendy’s Bringing Back 170 Additional Jobs to Dublin
Wendyâ€™s International is bringing an additional 170 jobs back to Dublin. The move is part of the hamburger chainâ€™s effort to consolidate its headquarters. Â Wendyâ€™s plans to close its Atlanta Restaurant Support Center operations.
Wendyâ€™s had previously announced it would move 50 positions from Atlanta.Â The company decidedÂ to relocate the additional positions after the state increased incentives.
â€œWhile this was a difficult decision considering the excellent employees we have in Atlanta, I believe it is important to bring our entire restaurant support center together in one location,â€ said Wendyâ€™s President and Chief Executive Officer Emil Brolick in a statement.
Todayâ€™s announcement means a total of 220 employees will be added to its Dublin complex.
Wendyâ€™s moved some executive offices to Atlanta after the chain was bought by Arbyâ€™s in 2008, eliminating 134 positions in Dublin. But Wendyâ€™s announced earlier this year it was selling off the Arbyâ€™s brand.
Wendyâ€™s is renovating its Dublin headquarters at a cost of $11 million.
