Wendy’s Training Video – Do you got the Rapping Skillz to Flip Burgers?


I met Dave Thomas in the mid-1990s at a book signing at…wait for it…a Wendy’s. He was a nice guy and took a few minutes to talk to me about my favorite Wendy’s meal. The guy really seemed to have a passion for what he did. I am always impressed when I meet a person like that, be they bloggers or hamburger magnates. It’s a charge to be around them.

In 1989, Wendy’s released the this training video. I wonder if Dave saw it and what he thought? Did he say, “Well if that’s what kids are into” and shrug or was he tapping his foot to the rhythm, secretly dreaming a of new career in Hip Hop. Straight out of Dublin, OH…Yeeeeaaah boooyeeeeee!! Let’s do the 4 corner press.
