One of the world biggest burger chains, Wendy’s, has opened in Kota Kinabalu! And we lined up with other eager customers today to have a taste of what it has to offer.


Located at Kota Kinabalu International Airport

The first and only Wendy’s branch is situated at Arrivals (beside Starbucks). It’s open from 6am to midnight daily, with breakfast served from 6-11am every day.


From Ohio to Kota Kinabalu

Founded by Dave Thomas on November 15, 1969, this restaurant were opened by Thomas in honour of his daughter. Just a year later, it expanded from Columbus, Ohio and opened its second branch.

By 1976, Wendy’s had around 500 restaurants within its franchise! And yesterday, the chain opened its first fully operating branch here in Kota Kinabalu. #excited

As we entered the premise, we saw the the logo displayed prominently at the entrance. Tables are up right outside the restaurant for an al fresco feel. The staff were friendly and professional.


As with most fast food chains, the prices of menu items were displayed via interactive screens right on top of the sales counter. It makes ordering and choosing easier.

An ordering tip, however, would be to make sure you’re aware that making any burger or main order a set involves a top-up of RM5 (regular) or RM6 (large). We made our orders too excitedly and didn’t realise the price till the bill arrived.

In terms of service and delivery, Wendy’s KK has a good system going. After customers make their order, a number will be printed on the receipt. When the number appears on the screen, customers can head to the pick-up counter for their food.


But what’s the food?

Interestingly, Wendy’s offers more than burgers. The usual fast food including fries and carbonated drinks are available. Other choices include Frosty Float, Nasi Ayam Wendy’s, Chili Frank, Chili Cheese Fries, and even porridge!

An opening promotion from now till 31 January 2018

In conjunction with its grown opening, Wendy’s KK is having a promotion. Get free refills for any beverage (with your breakfast combo) from 10th – 31 January, from 6am – 11am.

Or, get 5 pieces of fried chicken at RM15.00 from 10th – 14th January 2018. The promotion is available from 12pm – 2pm and 6pm – 8pm.
