    Wendys Mauston

    I went to Wendys in Mauston friday night, as I have done MANY times before. Of course, I was oc'ing. I ordered my food and was waiting for it when a female manager walked up to the register and said, "Could you do me a favor and go put that in your car?" I was pretty shocked to be asked to do this, I've been in there more times than I can count, and have never had any problems. I then asked if it was a store or corperate policy, she said it was her "personal policy". I figured I wouldnt get all to far with her, so I asked for the contact information for manager above her. She said she would get it for me. She gave me the number. I then asked for a refund, and went to another fast food resturant. Planning on calling the manager either tomorrow or Monday.

    Personal

    Hmm it is her "Personal Agenda" well she must be imported from Madison lol !

    As you know get confirmation from corporate and then go back in and if she is too dumb to read the policy hand her a printed out copy of the response. I guess this means we need to carry a folder with policies and responses from Corporate level and show them as needed

    Personal policy? I guess she doesn't want <insert type of person here> in HER store.

    1) Her personal policy doesn't amount to a hill of beans if she's going against what her employer tells her to do.
    2) It's my personal policy to be able to protect myself.
    3) Good job on getting manager info & a refund. Let us know about the follow-up w/ the manager or higher-ups.

    This is the only listing I found for a Wendy's in Mauston:
    Store #7785
    1101 State Road 82
    Mauston, WI
    53948
    (608) 847-5378

    If you look it up on Google maps, there's an option to provide a review... :whisting innocently:

    Here's the HQ in Ohio... In high school I worked at the Wendy's right across the street:
    Wendy's Consumer Relations - United States
    Wendy's International, Inc.
    One Dave Thomas Blvd.
    Dublin, OH
    43017
    Phone: (614) 764-3100, ext. 2032

    And their online 'contact us' start page:
    http://storefind.talktowendys.com/Default.aspx?s=2&l=en
    I used 'manager friendliness' as the category.

    Part of my note (adapt as needed, so it's not an obvious copy):
    Please let me know if this is also Wendy's corporate policy - turning away good customers simply because they're exercising their civil rights in a non-violent way. If so, I will make sure to tell my friends across the country who are lawfully armed for their own protection that their money isn't welcome at Wendy's. We wouldn't want to have any other manager put in the uncomfortable position of having to tell a customer to leave.

    This is a thread worth following. I will be interested to learn what the Wendy's policy is.

    I've read on other forums that they take the "follow state and local laws" policy.

    Cool A Culvers In SLC - What a Concept.

    This might be off-topic, but yesterday I discovered that Salt Lake has a brand new Culver's (previously the only one west of the Mississippi was in Iowa). Finally, my craving for a Butter Burger With Bacon was satisfied. And, I delighted in an order of Wisconsin Cheese Curds. The weekend was a total success. 1) I got the last German Military Walther P-38 at Cabela's - 2) The Packers beat Indianapolis - 3) Wisconsin Cheese Curds in my tummy - YUM. I was so happy I tucked in my shirt and Open Carried. Nobody said a word and if they noticed, I didn't see a reaction.

    I was just talking to a owner of two Culvers in my area and he told me that they just got a letter from the main office and it said to comply with all state laws. Both he and his wife will be carrying at work as he said that they make some rather large deposits at night.

    No. I tucked in the shirt before the Bacon Cheese Butter Burger and Curds - and I devoured these treats - Open Carry.

    I don't really care to see her lose a job over this... If it happens I wouldn't lose any sleep, but still. Thank you for writing a letter. I appreciate it.

    did you get this managers name? I really wish people would give names when they post these kinds of messages. Most stores have multiple managers or assistant manager, in addition to the "big cheese" store manager.

    I Open Carry ONLY for protection, Not to go out of my way to make a point....

    Some of the comments in this thread kinda give me a reason to pause and re-think my reasons for being here.... I guess the positive source of good information out weigh comments that I do not agree with.....

    Why you carry is totally your perogative and everyone should respect that.

    Why I carry is totally my perogative and I hope you would respect that.

    I live in a rural county, but I often visit the county I grew up in. Not much crime going on, but there is always a chance.

    Article I, Section 25 fo the Wisconsin Constitution states, The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation and any other lawful purpose.

    To exercise a Consitutional Right and educate others about it is a lawful purpose. A right not exercised is a right lost. I hope you would respect that.

    Having said that, to carry a firearm is a very solemn responsibility and you have to be prepared to use it. Prepared does simply mean that ability pull the trigger, criminals have that. Prepared means to have the mental and physical ability to protect innocent life, not endanger it. Regular training and practice helps prepare for that moment that we all hope never comes.
