Article Photos: Wendy's sales climb amid transformation push 1/2

  FILE - In this Feb. 28, 2012 file photo a bag of fries is handed to a customer through the drive through window at a Wendy's restaurant in Falmouth, Maine. Wendy's push to remake itself as a higher-end hamburger chain is starting to pay off, with a key sales figure rising for the sixth straight quarter. The company, based in Dublin, Ohio, is trying to pull away from the image of the typical fast-food chain and cast itself as a purveyor of higher-quality burgers and sides. The move reflects the growing popularity of chains such as Chipotle and Panera, which offer better quality food for slightly higher prices. (AP Photo/Pat Wellenbach, File)
