The heads of Wendy`s franchisee community recently voiced their support for Kerrii Anderson, who was named president and chief executive officer of Wendy''s International last week.

Ms. Anderson, prior to being unanimously chosen by Wendy's board of directors, had been serving in the role on an interim basis since April.

Three comittees represent Wendy's more than 450 North American franchisees. The committees include the Franchisee Advisory Council (FAC), which provides input on operational issues; Wendy's National Advertising Program (WNAP), which administers funds collected for national advertising production; and Wendy's Canadian Advertising Program (WCAP), which represents Canadian franchisees on marketing, operations and other items.

About 80% of Wendy's 6,300 restaurants in North America are franchised.
