Which Dave died?
here's my question:
Anyone who eats some amounts of fast food knows that the founder of
Wendy's restaurants Dave Thomas died a few years ago. that I agree
with, but the thing that has been nagging at my brain is that I seem
to remember something on the news a while back that said that there
was an actor playing Dave Thomas, because the real Dave was either
horribly ugly (so much that you wouldn't want to buy sandwiches from
him) or that he simply did not want to be in commercials. If this is
true, which Dave died? Did the real Dave die and leave the actor to
never be able to show his face again? Or did the actor die and leave
the real Dave anonymous? please find some answer to this as I have
been arguing it with friends family and coworkers for many months
now and need closure in my life.
Also, while I'm thinking about it, did Dave Thomas really have a
daughter that he named the restaurant after? and why?
thanks for any help
We received a couple emails as to whether Dave is
dead or alive Sean Diamond sent us this:
The real Dave Thomas is dead. It was the real
Dave in the commercials. Yes Dave has/had a daughter named Wendy
whom the chain was named after. Dave Thomas was adopted and did a
lot of charitable work (time and money) helping make adoption easier
for suitable parents. I learned most of this when he was "on"
We then received this email from Erin Imel:
For the which Dave died question, Dave Thomas really
did name his restaurant after his daughter Wendy. not sure exactly
why. and also, I am almost positive that there was no actor Dave
Thomas. just the real one. they showed old pictures and they
looked like the same guy. the reason I know this is because of gay
business foundations where all we did is watch pointless movies
about dead entrepreneurs.
