The owner of the largest Wendy’s restaurants franchise in the world showed his support for competitor Chick-fil-a with a message on some signs in the Carolinas.
WBTV has learned of at least one Wendy’s sign in Columbia, South Carolina that read “We stand with Chick-fil-A” on Wednesday morning.
A couple of hours later, that sign was taken down.
Jim Furman, CEO of Tarheel Capital based out of Boone, NC, who owns the restaurant and 74 other Wendy’s said the company decided to post the message. . . .
Furman said the message supporting Chick-fil-A was taken down because the company “felt it was time to go back to their marketing message.”
