Wendy’s is an Australian business which first started its humble beginnings in South Australia in 1979.  Wendy’s sells delicious ice-creams, sundaes, hot dogs and other yummy treats.

This year to celebrate National Hot Dog Day, Wendy’s have partnered with Guide Dogs Australia.

On 23 – 24 July, for every delicious hot dog sold at Wendy’s stores across Australia, $1 will be donated to Guide Dogs Australia.  Customers will also be able to make donations to Guide Dogs at any Wendy’s store from now.

“With the support of Wendy’s wonderful staff and customers, we’ll be able to continue to provide essential services for children, teenagers and adults who are blind or vision impaired,” said Sacha Koltun, Guide Dogs Australia National Manager Commercial Partnerships.

Customers are encouraged to upload photos your local Wendy’s with the hashtag #wendys4guidedogs on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We’ll be keeping an eye on the photos—so make sure to hashtag #wendys4guidedogs and #guidedogstas to be featured!

Guide Dog schools across Australia rely on the generosity of individuals, the community and businesses like Wendy’s to provide freedom and independence for people who are blind or vision impaired. So you can enjoy a scrumptious hot dog, all while supporting the vital work of Guide Dogs—it’s a win-win!

Your local Tasmanian franchises are located at

  • New Town Plaza
  • K-Mart Launceston
  • Meadow Mews
  • St John Street Launceston.
