WENDY'S SAYS NO TO "VOTE YES FOR BASEBALL" CAMPAIGN IN NC
Published February 19, 1998
The management of 30 Wendy's NC restaurants decided "to withdraw their participation in the newly-launched campaign" for an MLB stadium tax in the Triad, according to Justin Catanoso of the Greensboro NEWS & RECORD. Wendy's was one of three fast-food chains to agree to be in the "Vote Yes for Baseball" campaign, but announced that it is opting out of the initiative. Wendy's Greensboro Dir of Marketing John Dainotto: "Wendy's is not pro tax. We believe that's an issue that's got to be resolved by the voters. ... We're not in favor of promoting the Triad stadium movement." Wendy's management "initially agreed to provide what it hoped would be neutral information" about the tax proposal, provided by the "Vote Yes" campaign, but Dainotto said that Wendy's "didn't want its customers to think the restaurant was supporting the tax" (Greensboro NEWS & RECORD, 2/18).
