I worked at Wendy's for five years, and these are the most surprising things you probably didn’t know about the chain

I have a special place in my heart for fast food workers, because I was one for five years. My first job was as a crew member at Wendy's, and in my time there I learned a lot about what goes on behind the scenes in the construction of your Junior Bacon Cheeseburger and much more.

To my pleasant surprise, I never witnessed anything disgusting or cringe-worthy while working there, and I still find it to be one of the only fast food restaurants I'm comfortable eating at. So, here's what you need to know, even if you didn't work at Wendy's.
