If you’re like us, you’ll remember Wendy’s as the fast-food restaurant in Liat Towers—you know, the one that you went to while waiting for the movie in Lido to start. After all, having McDonald’s or any other fast-food in Orchard is just too mainstream.
(Did anyone say anything about a flood?)
Or maybe you remember Wendy’s as the fast-food restaurant just below Jurong East MRT Station—the exact spot that used to house the iconic POPULAR Bookstore (and that familiar, “I’m in POPULAR; come find me there when you reach!”).
No matter what memories of you have of Wendy’s (strangely, none of us remember the food, though),you won’t be able to create new ones, because Wendy’s in Singapore is going to be part of history, just like A&W (if you’re old enough to remember).
According to media reports, Wendy’s has been quietly dying, but in this social media age, “quietly” just won’t make the cut. The chain has branched out into Singapore in 1980s and left the market before (which we’re quite sure many of us didn’t know). In 2009, it made a comeback, and had 11 outlets soon after, including neighbourhood areas like Yishun and Jurong.
But recently, there left only two outlets: one in NUS U-Town (think of it as an outlet just for students there) and Lau Pa Sat. Unfortunately, the last outlet in NUS closed just yesterday, and there we have it: another fast-food restaurant that we can only have across the causeway (in case you’re no aware, yes, A&W is still operating in Malaysia!).
Whatever is the case, at least now we’ve still got many other alternate fast-food restaurants like Texas Chicken. But with rental increasing every now and then, with such strong competition, and most importantly, with Singaporeans going for healthier option, we would suggest trying out all the fast-food restaurants…because you never know when they’ll just die quietly.
