What are the hours and when should I call?

Wendy's operates the call center for this 888-624-8140 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Wednesday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 232 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Wendy's phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Wendy's staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Wendy's is Saturday. The most busy day to call is Thursday, which averages 170% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 232 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Wednesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Thursday.

The best time to call Wendy's

In summation, the best day to call Wendy's is Wednesday. It isn't the least busy day, but the fact that hold times are shortest combined with it being on the busy side tells us that Wendy's staffs up on Wednesday to handle the higher call volume, and that makes it the best time to call.

Calling this Wendy's Customer Number

Calling Wendy's is completely ineffective outside of business hours on weekdays, as the company does not offer any kind of automated system or any kind of assistance with the number in these situations. In order to make a call to Wendy's, you must call between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Monday through Friday. No Saturday or Sunday calls are accepted.

If you call at a time when Wendy's isn't open, you won't have any kind of ability to speak to anyone or ask the automated system for information. You'll be told that the hours of operation are what they are, and you'll be encouraged to visit the website for Wendy's to get assistance that way. After letting you know that you can go online to get assistance at any point, the system will automatically end the call.

There's no automated system of any kind except for the automated message letting you know that nobody is available to assist you. You won't be able to make any choices or ask the system for information. If you have a complaint on a weekend day, you have to wait until Monday to address it by phone.

Based on this, my view of this call was that even though it was unhelpful, at least it didn't waste any time. The system makes no attempt to pretend it can offer any help or take you through a menu. It simply gives you the information and ends the call. Based on this interaction, I would make sure to call within hours, but I would use this number for assistance, as the no-nonsense manner appeals to me.

As a last, sometimes only, resort- Wendy's customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
