DUBLIN, Ohio, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wendy's® believes fresh is something you can taste, and we believe fresh tastes better. Wendy's new Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Salad and Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich, is a duo built with simple, yet deliciously different ingredients.
"When we say fresh at Wendy's, we mean it. While others cut corners, we deliver on our promise of freshness every day, thanks to our unique supply chain developed to provide beef, produce, and other items to our restaurants two to three times a week," said Kurt Kane, Chief Concept and Marketing Officer. "And now we are using our unique supply chain to deliver fresh mozzarella for a deliciously different new chicken sandwich and salad. This is something the other guys just don't do."
Wendy's is proud to be the first national fast food restaurant to offer fresh mozzarella on its menu. The new product duo expands Wendy's flavor profile by mixing the delicious flavor of BelGioioso® fresh mozzarella cheese with bold tastes of balsamic vinegar and creamy basil pesto sauce. Whole and natural ingredients like juicy tomatoes and crisp greens are prepared in restaurant and complete the fresh, deliciously different experience.
