With more than 10,000 stores and about $12 billion in sales, Wendy's is one of the largest fast-food restaurant chains in the world and the third-largest in the US. To better manage its costs, supply chain, and marketing, the company needed to improve its ability to integrate data from multiple internal and external sources.

Challenges

  • Manage food and labor costs across all store locations
  • Improve sales and product forecasting
  • Improve communication with vendors and other business partners
Informatica PowerCenter processes in a few minutes the volume of data that once took twenty minutes. That's very important to us strategically.
