She said about the conversation with her father: & # 39; It was the first time we had ever had this conversation. He said, "You know what? I'm sorry."

& # 39; I asked him what he meant. He explained: "I should have named it after myself because it put a lot of pressure on you." I replied: "Yes, it is very busy. I have to do the right thing. & # 39; & # 39;

Thomas-Morse was actually called Melinda but went through Wendy. Her father founded the chain in 1969 when she was eight years old.

She added: & # 39; I have to do the right thing, because it is the legacy that I have to continue. I want to do the right thing through him, because he has worked very hard to start this. I know he's been gone for almost 20 years, but he's still working.

& # 39; However, the name has its advantages. Sometimes it helps if I need a reservation! & # 39;

Thomas-Morse said that character traits for the opening of the restaurant also had its challenges.

She said: & # 39; When the first restaurant opened, I was in third grade and was allowed to skip the school. My mother made my blue and white dress and she put my hair up in tails.

& # 39; And boy, I cried. It hurt. Then she put those pipe cleaners in it. We were five or six hours before the photographer. & # 39;

& # 39; I have to wear my dress and they made this huge hamburger and, of course, when you are young you like it, how did they do that with that big patty?

& # 39; Of course it was just burgers around it, but I had to take a bite of it and I was just excited to the moon. & # 39;
