The American fast-food restaurant chain Wendy's has been forced to reduce its menu in individual states due to lack of meat. Manufacturers did not provide restaurants with the necessary quantities of beef due to the spread of the virus and the unfavorable epidemiological situation in the country.
Wendy's restaurants in Ohio, Michigan, South Carolina, Kentucky, New York, and California were offered a shortened menu from which burgers temporarily disappeared. Stephens estimates that one-fifth of all Wendy's restaurants have faced shortages of raw materials.
As of early 2020, Wendy's is the third-largest burger chain in the world market, second only to McDonald's and Burger King. The company manages 6,700 establishments, more than 1,000 of which are located in the United States. Experts note that to date, many beef producers in the country have faced difficulties.
