My wife and I went to wendy's to purchase the 4 for 4 deal at a few locations in Lanham and Hyattsville, MD. Both restaurants refused to honor the advertisement shown on tv even until the date of this posting.

I did reach out to the corporate contact numbers listed for the locations but received no resolution.

I believe this chain is red lining in certain urban areas with false advertising and not honoring pricing that is offered in the suburbs. This is poor business practice and should be stopped.

Reason of review: Not as described/ advertised.

Wendys does not honor this ad in the Baltimore or Washington DC area. Try and ask for it and the staff there treat you like you are a stupid chump.

SCREW WENDYs for treating the consumer like we are suckers. I will take my business elsewhere - to a business that honors their ads.

Same for me, everywhere PG county, except one time in Forestville, across mall, that I used to visit due to workplace proximity, at the time. Still my favorite fast food restaurant... but, why advertise falsely!?

We have looked in VA as well, no one is participating. This is not the only fast food chain offering "too good to be true deals" right now.

The others you will find do not participate either. They are hiding behind the clause of "at

participating locations only", and falsely advertising something, getting you to the nearest location and when you get there you're hungry, and pay through the nose.

Bait and switch. Consumer protection shouldn't allow it.

It's NOT false advertising! They tell you upfront not all locations are participating!

Franchises can opt out of whatever deals Corporate comes up with. That is their right if they feel it would cause their business to suffer.

Of course it is their right to opt out. That's not the problem.

The franchises are opting out for a good reason. The corporation is advertising something that is not available (because their franchises probably can't afford to participate) but it drives customers there in the hopes that they will give in and buy something else.

If you're a franchisee, I respect that. Regardless, please take care to remain silent if you're going to support suppressing civil liberties of hardworking people.

All Wendy's franchises in the Baltimore/DC areas are owned by one entity, and as a rule they NEVER participate in the nationally advertised promotions. I haven't eaten at a Wendy's in years because of this.

I just stopped going. It's a choice.

I went to 6 locations in Virginia:

3040 Gate House Plaza, Falls Church, VA

9688 Main St., Fairfax, VA

4000 Jermantown Rd., Fairfax, VA

13030 Fair Lakes Shopping Center, Fairfax, VA

14106 W. View Dr., Centreville, VA 14445 Brookfield Tower Dr., Chantilly, VA Each location "is not participating" I'd like to see a list of locations that are participating in the Northern VA area.

These locations are as suburban as it gets, so that's not the issue. Wendy's website should put forth some ethical responsibility to allow consumers access to this information.

Furthermore, of the 6 locations I went to, only one location even attempted to get me to stay to order something else. *** poor training.
