[Sunrise, FL] Ross Realty Investments announced that Wendy’s International, Inc., will be moving their South Florida headquarters as well as its Latin American headquarters to the Indian Trace Commons building in Sunrise. The building is located at 1398 SW 160th Avenue.
The facility will also serve as an executive training center and will be a frequent stop for international and out-of-area visitors, enriching the local economy.

Involved in bringing Wendy’s International to Sunrise was Lou Sandora, the City of Sunrise’s Economic Development Director, who – along with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance CEO Council and Sunrise building services officials – worked diligently to bring the deal to fruition.
“We are delighted that leading corporations like Wendy’s continue to make the City of Sunrise their location of choice,” said Sunrise Mayor Michael J. Ryan. “This project exemplifies the dedication of our staff, and the City’s commitment to new and expanding business enterprises. We wish Wendy’s International every success in Sunrise.”
Ray Ferrero Jr., Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance CEO Council chairman and chancellor of Nova Southeastern University, stated, “We are pleased that Wendy’s has chosen to bring their Latin American and Florida corporate headquarters to Sunrise and welcome them to the Greater Fort Lauderdale’s area.”
Sunrise is home to some 150 corporate and international regional headquarter operations.
“It’s made even more special based on our close friendship with Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas and his wife Lorraine as longtime Fort Lauderdale residents and wonderfully generous supporters of our area through the Enterprise Ambassador Program at Nova Southeastern University and the Dave Thomas Education Center in Coconut Creek,” added Ferrero.
Ferrero, obviously moved by the Wendy’s founder’s commitment to the community, noted that the Dave Thomas Education Center “offers GED classes to young adults as a legacy to Dave’s advocacy and commitment to education and life-long-learning.”
