While McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) continues to reign supreme at the top of the pile, the fast food industry was still significantly shaken on Monday when it was revealed that Wendy's (NYSE: WEN) has knocked Burger King (NYSE: BKC) off the number 2 spot.
According to the Associated Press, a report by food research company Technomic that will be released in April shows that Wendy's knocked Burger King to one side in U.S. sales volume for the first time since WEN was founded in 1969.
To put things into perspective, that is much like a company knocking Pepsi (NYSE: PEP) off the number two cola spot. There are some companies that we just expect to be ranked in a certain position. Wendy's should be commended for finally disrupting that train of thought.
