Michael O'Brien

Black Star Management

Michael is a second-generation Wendy's franchisee. His career in the restaurant business began at the age of 14, working in his father’s restaurant. He rose through the ranks and became a general manager by the time he graduated from college.

Michael brings a wealth of financial expertise and a lifelong commitment to the Wendy's brand. After four years in the Army, he earned an MBA in Finance from the University of Notre Dame. He then worked as a Financial Planning & Analysis manager at Intel Corporation before returning to his roots--rejoining his father’s business as CFO. Within a few years he acquired eight restaurants and today he owns and operates 15 Wendy's locations in the Windsor and London areas of Ontario.

Michael and his wife have two young children and he is hopeful they will someday become third-generation members of the Wendy’s family. Michael enjoys relaxing with his family in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and traveling to cheer on his beloved Fighting Irish football team.
