In 2010 former Prestige Holdings chief executive Dane Darbasie was named as the local franchise holder for Wendy’s, which signed a long-term restaurant development agreement that will gave the US fast-food company significant presence throughout the Eastern Caribbean.
The agreement called for the development of 24 Wendy’s restaurants over the next ten years in T&T and eight other markets.
The first Wendy’s restaurant in T&T was opened in 2011 in Trinidad on Ariapita Avenue.
