Melinda Lou "Wendy" Morse (nee Thomas, born September
14, 1961) is the daughter and fourth child of American businessman
Dave Thomas, the founder of the restaurant Wendy's. Morse is best
known for being the namesake and mascot of the restaurant.
Lou Thomas was born on September 14, 1961, in the United States
of America, the fourth child of Dave Thomas. As a child, Morse
was unable to pronounce the L in her name Melinda and so she became
known by her nickname Wenda. Then 8-year old Wenda would eventually
become the namesake behind the name of her father's restaurant
Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers. In addition to being the namesake,
her likeness was used as Wendy's logo in the form of a young girl
with red braids.
an adult, Morse owned several Wendy's restaurants near Dallas,
Texas until 1999. After the death of her father Dave Thomas in
2002, Morse and her siblings bought restaurants in the Columbus,
Ohio area. As of September 2010, Morse herself owned or co-owned
more than 30 Wendy's stores. In November 2010, she began appearing
in Wendy's ads on camera for the first time (Her voice was featured
in a 1989 ad giving her father advice from off-camera.) The 2010
ads aired first in Las Vegas, Nevada, Mobile, Alabama, and Virginia
Beach, Virginia, test markets before being rolled out nationally.
Morse currently serves on the board of trustees of the Dave Thomas
Foundation for Adoption.
