Investor’s Business Daily reported it will be up to the franchisees whether to deploy the labor-saving technology.
Wendy’s President Todd Penegor said some franchise locations have been raising prices to offset wage hikes.
In addition to the kiosks, Wendy’s also plans on releasing a mobile ordering and payment app by the end of the year.
Fast food rival McDonald’s has also been testing self-service kiosks.
