The numbers were close 51% to 49% but carry-outs were 41% a decade ago. Meanwhile Wendy's Intl. the Dublin OH-based fast-food chain is replacing salad bars in company-owned outlets with five salad offerings all prepackaged at each store in square plastic plates and domes. Wendy's says today's consumers favor a prepackaged salad to the salad bar.
