Chain Links: Eat Burgers, Pray, Love

A combo Wendy’s/Arby’s is coming to Russia. 180 of them in the next decade. It only makes me more sad that Brooklyn’s only Arby’s has already died a quick death. [Reuters]

El Chico is opening in Saudi Arabia. Consolidated Restaurant Operations already franchises a slew of American restaurants I’ve never heard of in Saudia Arabia and Egypt: Cantina Laredo, III Forks, Silver Fox, Good Eats, Luckys Cafe and Cool River Cafe. [Press release]
