What seems to be the increasing prices of fast food lately that everyone seems to be complaining about. There is one fast-food chain that soars above all the rest being the most expensive.

We've seen it all over social media, national news, and your wallet the prices of fast food lately are just plain ridiculous. However, there is one fast food chain that towers above the rest of being the most expensive and they have over 200 locations in Illinois..


Everything on Wendy's menu seems to be over $10. Unless you just get a cheeseburger with no fires and drink, all of the combo meals are pretty pricy. Now, every place that I have been to lately seems to have increased prices it's not just Wendy's, but for another year they are the most expensive.

There are 201 locations of the fast food giornat and it doesn't look like they are going anywhere anytime soon. People seem to love their food options (which are delicious) and not care about the price of everything.

To combat these price increases announced this year (to start in 2025) Wendy's will be implementing a new "dynamic pricing" program. Which breaks down to lowering prices during non-business hours. So if you're craving that Dave's Double at 2 pm you might pay less for it than you would at 5 pm.

Will this work?

Who knows. But Wendy's seems to be the only fast food chain trying to help customers combat the high prices of food. These chains see that people are not coming to their restaurants as much as everyone is trying to inch pennies, so I'll give it the Wendy's to try this. Guess we will see if the other chains will come up with something or just follow in Wendy's footsteps.
