That's not the first Wendy's in the DR, the first one opened at the Punta Cana Airport terminal earlier this year.

Also, the Subway franchise will return to the DR once the lawsuit is settled.

I beleive the first Wendy's in the DR was at the Las Americas airport and that was many years ago followed by the one at 27 de Febrero. Of course those closed a couple of years ago wasn't it?

Wendy's is great, but I guarantee they will still have the same ****ty slow service. One thing the dominicans really don't get: the idea of FAST food. Their idea is that since you are paying ALL of this money for this strange food, they will spend EXTRA time preparing it for you.

Why not go and spend an hour for a burger??

And Wendy's also had a restaurant on Tiradentes above 27 de Febrero, which has now been turned into a liquor store. You can go sit in front and drink your purchase right out of the brown bag chopo-style, while parking your SUV in the street, thereby impeding traffic.

Nals, can you give a quick synopsis of what the Subway lawsuit is all about?

Thank you..
The name "Subway" is trademarked by the multinational American based corporation. The former franchisee of the Subway restaurants that used to operate in the DR registered the name "Subway" as if it was his name and not as a trademarked name of a multi-national corporation. In other words, he owns the commercial name "Subway" and because of that, no other business on Dominican soil can legally use that name and that's where the problem started.

The real Subway company can't grant franchising rights to anyone in the Dominican Repubilc because it's name is legally owned by the former franchisee. The multi-national want the rights to their name within the DR because as of now they can't open a single Subway restaurant on Dominican soil with such name unless they pay the former franchisee for using such name.

They have two choices:

1. Registered their Dominican Subway company with another name.

2. Attempt to gain ownership of what essentially is their trademarked name.

They don't want to do the first option, so they are persuing the second option. However, the former franchisee refuses to give up his ownership of the "Subway" name within the DR and the fight has been going on in the Dominican court.
