Here’s everything you need to know about Wendy’s and why it’s become the meme stock of the day over on Reddit.

  • Let’s get the obvious out of the way first.
  • Wendy’s is a fast-food chain that sells burgers, chicken, and other foods.
  • That chicken is actually what has Reddit’s interest as they pine for “chicken tendies”.
  • Well, it’s not just that.
  • Redditors are also sold on the restaurant chain’s financials and recovery potential after the pandemic.
  • That makes sense with Wendy’s recently announcing plans to add another 250 stores by the end of the year.
  • That will bring it up to 7,000 stores and there are plans to boost that to 8,000 by the time 2025 rolls around.
  • In addition to all of this, there’s some fun banter going on between Wendy’s and GameStop (NYSE:GME) over on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR).
  • The two brands have been interacting with each other lately and that’s something traders on social media love to see.
  • That comes as no surprise considering the love that Reddit and meme stock traders have for GME.
  • The recent interest in WEN stock also has it seeing heavy trading.
  • As a result, more than 33 million shares of the stock have changed hands as of this writing.
  • That’s over 10 times the stock’s daily average trading volume of about 3 million shares.

WEN stock is up 15.7% as of Tuesday morning and is up 24.1% since the start of the year.
