Wendy's (WEN) passes Burger King as the nation's 2nd largest burger chain, according to Technomic, which expects 2011 sales of $8.5B vs. BK's of $8.4B. Despite the move, Wendy's has struggled in recent years - the victim of "self-inflicted" wounds - and is in the midst of trying to reinvent itself as a higher-end chain.
