Wendy's Bringing Back 170 Additional Jobs to Dublin

Wendy’s International is bringing an additional 170 jobs back to Dublin. The move is part of the hamburger chain’s effort to consolidate its headquarters.  Wendy’s plans to close its Atlanta Restaurant Support Center operations. Wendy’s had previously announced it would move 50 positions from Atlanta.  The company decided  to relocate the additional positions after the state increased incentives. “While this was a difficult decision considering the excellent employees we have in Atlanta, I believe it is important to bring our entire restaurant support center together in one location,â€? said Wendy’s President and Chief Executive Officer Emil Brolick in a statement. Today’s announcement means a total of 220 employees will be added to its Dublin complex. Wendy’s moved some executive offices to Atlanta after the chain was bought by Arby’s in 2008, eliminating 134 positions in Dublin. But Wendy’s announced earlier this year it was selling off the Arby’s brand. Wendy’s is renovating its Dublin headquarters at a cost of $11 million.
