In May 1989, Fuqua opened the 112,000 square foot R. David Thomas Center. Named after the founder of Wendy’s International, Inc., the center includes 111 guest rooms, two executive suites, meeting and catering space, a 230-seat dining room and a full bar, along with classrooms and a clubroom.
The center is a comfortable and modern facility, primarily used by the school’s executive education and executive MBA students. The R. David Thomas Center is connected to the main Fuqua building by a covered walkway. Students, faculty, staff and visitors are welcome to patronize the dining room and lounge, and reserve guest room accommodations.
