Wendy's has tasked VML India with bringing alive the brand on digital and creating anticipation for the launch through social channels.

VML India has been named the digital agency of record (AoR) for Wendy's India, after a multi-agency pitch. Wendy's, an American brand of burger restaurants, made its debut in India on May 6, with its first restaurant in Gurgaon. It has chosen to launch in India with a restaurant experience and India-customised menu, in keeping with its brand philosophy of always being 'A Cut Above'. Digital is a key component of Wendy's marketing leading up to launch and as it grows its business across the country.
