We all need some good news right now and, luckily, Wendy’s is delivering the goods. This week the fast-food giant announced that they were debuting their new Classic Chicken Sandwich and are offering it to customers for free for a limited time! The exciting promotion will run now through November 8th. Wendy’s fans can get their free Classic Chicken Sandwich with any additional purchase at a Wendy’s location or on the restaurant’s mobile app. “We can’t wait for our fans to get their hands on the New Classic Chicken Sandwich which has the perfect crunch from breading and pickles paired with the juiciness and flavor of the fillet,” Chief Marketing Officer Carl Loredo said in a statement. “The Classic joins what customers have already come to know and love in spice and taste from Wendy’s via our Spicy Chicken and Pretzel Bacon Pub Chicken Sandwiches.”
Customers are allowed to get one free sandwich per week, which means you can grab two free Classic Chicken Sandwiches before November 8th! The new menu item is a crispy, all-white chicken breast, layered with mayonnaise, a slice of tomato, lettuce, and pickles on a toasted bun. Wendy’s is positive that their new Classic Chicken filet is so good that they are replacing all premium chicken fillets across their chicken sandwich lineup (the Bacon Jalapeño Chicken Sandwich, Asiago Ranch Chicken Club and the new Pretzel Bacon Pub Chicken Sandwich) with the “new-and-improved Classic fillet.”
The Classic Chicken Sandwich is replacing the Homestyle Chicken Sandwich, which has been on Wendy’s menu for at least a decade. Over the summer, it added a spicy version of its Crispy Chicken Sandwich and let customers add a fried chicken filet to its newly launched Prestzel Bacon Pub burger. Chicken sandwiches have gained in popularity since Popeye’s introduced its game-changer in 2019. Restaurant Brands International (QSR), its owner, revealed last week in its preliminary third-quarter results that Popeye’s sales grew 17.4% while Burger King and Tim Horton’s registered declines, according to CNN.
