Thursday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Thursday’s business headlines.

Wendy’s

Wendy’s bet on breakfast is paying off as it reported better-than-expected sales and raised its forecast for the year.

Also, Wendy’s said a recently launched chicken sandwich also sold well during the quarter.

GasBuddy

GasBuddy has been a go-to app for finding the nearest spot to fill up.

Earlier Wednesday, it appeared GasBuddy might be down, according to a message posted on its website.

GasBuddy allows users to find the cheapest prices for gas but has risen in popularity because of a crowdsourced fuel availability tracker that helps users find which stations still have gas.

Tesla

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk says the company has suspended taking Bitcoin payments for its vehicles.

He tweeted they are concerned about the rapidly increasing use of fossil fuels for Bitcoin mining.

Tesla earlier this year began to accept the cryptocurrency as payment for products sold in the U.S.

United Airlines

Starting June 1, United Airlines customers on most flights over two hours will be able to purchase beer and wine.

On June 15, United will introduce a revamped menu of for-purchase snacks and brand-new premium cabin meal options on most flights over 1,500 miles and hub-to-hub flights over 800 miles more than two hours. Customers will be able to purchase these offerings.
