News Summary: Wendy's sales figure climbs
YUMMY RESULTS: The Wendy's Co. says it's making progress in its turnaround push, with a key sales figure climbing for the sixth straight quarter.
NEW FLAVOR: The company, based in Dublin, Ohio, is trying to reinvent itself as a purveyor of higher quality burgers and sides than the typical fast-food chain.
CRUNCHING NUMBERS: Wendy's says sales at restaurants open at least 15 months rose 2.7 percent during the third quarter. The increase was driven by higher spending per visit, although there were fewer transactions.
