Wendy’s Unveils New Spring Menu Items
WENDY’S is updating its menu for spring with three new items that correlate with the season. The fast-food restaurant hopes to grab the attention of customers with its new “grab and go” option, along with some refreshing choices that will join the menu starting March 28.
The New Menu Items
The three new items on the menu include a Blueberry Pomegranate Lemonade, Grilled Chicken Ranch Wrap, and Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad. Wendy’s Global Chief Marketing Officer Carl Loredo said in a news release, “We are always listening to our fans and introducing exciting new menu items to give them exactly what they are craving.”
Blueberry Pomegranate Lemonade
The lemonade will cost $2.29 and is said to have tart notes of pomegranate along with a sweet touch of blueberry in Dave’s Craft Lemonade. “Our Dave’s Craft Lemonades have been a fan-favorite menu item for years, and our all-natural lemonade foundation allows us to bring flavor innovation like no one else in the business,” Loredo said of the new flavor.
Grilled Chicken Ranch Wrap
This new item has been described as the “perfect grab-and-go meal” and will reportedly cost about $6.29. The chicken wrap comes with grilled pieces of chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, romaine lettuce, and ranch sauce. “There are many who’ve tried to master the grilled chicken wrap, but we’re not snacking around with our offering,” Vice President of Culinary Innovation John Li said.
Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad
Wendy’s has been known to offer different seasonal salads that have come with mandarin oranges or even apples in the past. This time, the fast-food chain is introducing a cobb salad version. It will come with romaine lettuce, chopped applewood smoked bacon, diced tomato, grilled chicken, crispy fried onions, diced egg, and ranch dressing. The salad will cost $6.29 like the chain’s other salads. “The freshest made Cobb in the game,” Wendy’s dubbed the item.
Other Menu Updates
The fast-food chain also brought a fish sandwich into the mix for lent called the Crispy Panko Fish. Wendy’s recently brought back its vanilla-flavored frosty which replaced the strawberry frosty flavor that was introduced for the first time last year. It also is set to sell its beloved chili in grocery stores. Wendy’s also has plans to start implementing a delivery pick-up window and new-generation technology in its restaurants.
Wendy’s spring menu aims to offer customers fresh and accessible options that cater to their cravings during the season. With the unveiling of the new items, Wendy’s hopes that it’s able to appeal to a wider demographic and continues its growth and innovation in the fast-food industry.
