General Manager


What you'll do

Want to lead a team committed to bringing it every single day? As a Wendy's GM:

You're in charge of all people and operations for a Wendy's restaurant. Fresh food is all we do, so we count on you and your team members to do it right for our customers every day and night. No phoning it in - well, unless DoorDash is calling.

You and your team treat customers like family. Great food, great service, great everything is what keeps them coming back.

You show Shift Managers and Crew Members how to do it right, and make sure every shift is better than the last.

You give and take direction like a pro.

This one's a no-brainer: you're in charge of increasing store sales and profit goals.

Whether you started out as a Crew Member or you're coming from another foodservice organization, you believe in Wendy's and are glad to be a part of our family
