Wendy’s has recently announced that despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the chain has seen some of the best same-restaurant growth this quarter than it has in over a decade. Several factors were likely responsible for this growth, including the continued popularity of the chain’s new breakfast menu and its partnerships with third-party delivery apps.

The fast-food chain reported that same-restaurant sales rose by 10.5% in the third quarter, using a two-year basis, according to Columbus Business First. It also saw same-restaurant growth of 6.1% during this period, the highest it’s been in 15 years.
The company’s popular breakfast lineup, which launched earlier this year, was reportedly responsible for about 6.5% of the increase. Wendy's has also seen sales through third-party delivery apps double, which is likely attributable to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
