Yes, for the first time since 1983, Wendy’s (a well known, Ohio based fast food chain, known for it’s burgers and Frostys) has a new logo!
A cleaned up, less busy, more streamlined one, it still features the familiar pig-tailed redhead, just not quite so young and child like. It also has the same red color scheme.
Wendy’s was founded in 1969, by Dave Thomas. Thomas named the restaurant after his fourth child, Melinda Lou “Wendy” Thomas. Until it was closed on March 2, 2007, the original Wendy’s restaurant had photographs and illustrations of her (as well as other memorabilia based upon her) on display.
The “real” Wendy.
Below is the old logo, vs. the new one.
Although the new one is definitely “new”, I think I prefer the “old” one.
