Carlisle acquires 46 Wendy's locations
Wendy's 10th largest franchise organization, Carlisle, said today it's buying 46 restaurants in Alabama and Florida from Roger and Raisa Webb's franchise organization — the Wendco Group — a news release said.
"We could not pass up the unique opportunity to grow our company by acquiring contiguous restaurants that have been incredibly well run by Roger and his team," Carlisle CEO Chance Carlisle said in the release. "Roger is a Wendy's Hall of Fame inductee, and we are beyond honored to carry forward his tradition of excellence."
Roger Webb said that Carlisle is a quality team and that he was sure the company was leaving their restaurants "in great hands." Webb began his Wendy's career working directly alongside the restaurant company's legendary founder, Dave Thomas.
Through its wholly owned subsidiary Wendelta, Carlisle owns and operates 150 Wendy's restaurants in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. The company has been in existence 40 years, and nine of its general managers were among the Top 200 recognized by the company among its global network of 6,600 restaurants.
