Wendy’s winning system

When his leadership and business skills caught the attention of the corporate higher-ups, he was offered the position of Chief Executive Officer of Wendy’s.

In only a span of five years, Shane Radbone implemented his winning system to Wendy’s and was able to grow the company from a $75m to a $120m business.
Wendy’s was also able to gain record profit for three consecutive years under Shane Radbone’s management. Because of the turnaround in Wendy’s fate, they received numerous awards for innovation.
