Wendy's Supa Sundaes,[2] trading as Wendy's,[3] and currently as Wendy's Milk Bar is an Australian and New Zealand ice cream parlour franchise chain consisting of over 200 stores or kiosks. In New Zealand, it coexists with the US based Wendy's chain of fast food restaurants, which no longer operates within Australia.


The Wendy's franchise network of ice cream retail stores was founded in Adelaide, South Australia on 31 July 1979 by Bruce Koehne, John Hill, Geoff Davis and Phil Rogers. Wendy's has grown from a single store to a large franchise network of over 200 stores spread across Australia and New Zealand. It is owned by parent company Supatreats Australia, headquartered in Baulkham Hills, New South Wales.

In late 2018 the Wendy's Supa Sundaes in New Zealand was rebranded to Shake Shed & Co. Meanwhile, the Australian outlets were also rebranded to "Wendy's Milk Bars" indicating a slight change in business direction for the company seeking to reposition the brand as a Milk Bar chain.
