What We Stand For
QSCC draws its inspiration from Dave Thomas’ “Five Legacy Values” derived from the earliest co-ops formed in England during the 1800s. We embrace these values to guide our actions as we work to meet our members’ needs.
Five Legacy Values
These five values shaped Dave Thomas’ life and Wendy’s, the company he founded.
Quality is Our Recipe: Don't Cut Corners
QSCC provides its members with products and services that offer the optimal balance of quality, consistency and price through its devotion to innovation, execution and continuous process improvement.
Do the Right Thing: Run Your Business With Personal Integrity
QSCC is committed to honesty, integrity, transparency and process as well as making a positive difference by increasing awareness that government policies have on individual businesses and encouraging environmental sustainability in prudent and cost-effective ways.
Just Be Nice: Treat Everyone With Respect
Everyone is equally important in the Wendy’s system. QSCC pursues win-win results in negotiations with its suppliers and distributors, and works with them as true business partners dedicated to their mutual success.
Profit Means Growth: The Key to Success is Hard Work and a Desire to Succeed
QSCC believes meeting the needs of its members will enable them to succeed. The co-op shares its success with its members and team. It believes all supply chain partners should receive equitable benefits from their efforts to support the Wendy’s system.
Give Something Back: The More You Give, the More You Get in Return
QSCC promotes its members' efforts to give back to the communities in which they do business as well as the charitable foundations to which the Wendy’s system is already committed – including the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
