We work hard to offer our customers high-quality, fresh food choices. We’ve provided nutrition information for many years, both in our restaurants and on wendys.com. Through our website and on our mobile application, customers can search for nutritional information about a specific menu item or combine items and calculate totals for their meal. We believe this gives our customers a way to plan which menu items fit their personal lifestyle and dietary needs.
Customers may download our My Wendy's mobile application on their iPhone or android by visiting the iTunes App Store, Google Play Store or wendys.com/app.
Our food is wholesome and delicious. We strive to provide food that our customers will not only enjoy themselves, but also food they’ll feel good about serving to their family members and friends.
That’s why we freshly prepare many items in our restaurant kitchens, like handmade Pico de Gallo, chili that’s slow simmered every day, lettuce that’s hand-leafed and tomatoes sliced fresh.
We understand that our customers may have food allergies or need to avoid certain foods, which is why we display allergen information in every restaurant. We want to make it convenient for our customers to see which menu items contain common food allergens like eggs, fish, milk, soy, wheat, peanuts and tree nuts. We also provide a full listing of nutritional information in every restaurant. To view nutritional information for our products, click here.
Yes, you can dine out and still make great choices. Even though we do make an excellent hamburger, Wendy’s also is known for its tasty chicken options, entrée salads and signature sides like chili, baked potatoes and our signature Frosty line.
Delicious all-white meat chicken breast, fresh apples, berries and 11 types of field greens are just some examples of ingredients that go into our line-up of salads, creating great taste combinations and flavorful meals.
All of our chicken sandwiches can be ordered with grilled chicken breast for a lighter choice.
Like others in the restaurant industry, we are aware of the challenges we face as a business.
Sodium is a challenge not only to the restaurant industry, but for food manufacturers as well. Finding ways to reduce the level of sodium in our products, without sacrificing the flavor of our food, is an ongoing focus of our Culinary Team. We continually review our menu for improvements we can make, and ask our suppliers to work with us on ways to further enhance our food.
Several years ago, Wendy’s switched to a vegetable cooking oil that contains 0 grams of trans fats.
We also worked with our French fry suppliers to create a blend of oils with 0 grams trans fat that is used in the manufacturing plants that prepare Wendy’s Natural-Cut Fries. See the nutrition portion of the wendys.com website for the latest information on this and other nutrition topics.
Our Registered and Licensed Dietitians, Patty Wynkoop and Mike Sieminski, work hard to make sure our customers know exactly what they’re eating.They’re involved not only with the development of our new products, but also with ensuring that the nutrition information for those products is accurate and readily available to customers.In the development of new menu items, Patty and Mike work alongside the Culinary Team, creating nutrition profiles for all our products, and when possible, incorporating ingredients that are less-processed. As Wendy’s Chef Gerard Lewis says, “ingredients you can pronounce.”Communicating what those ingredients are is another part of the dietitians’ role.“We’re devoted to providing accurate and complete nutrition, ingredient, and allergen information so our customers know exactly what they are eating,” Wynkoop said. “It’s important to us that our customers are able to make informed dietary choices.”Through our website and nutrition app, customers can search for nutritional information about a specific menu item, or build and customize a meal and calculate their nutrition totals. And with our nutrition app, users can select a desired calorie range for their meal, and we will provide them with meal suggestions that fit. We believe these tools make it easy for customers to choose menu items that meet their personal lifestyle and dietary needs.Customers may download our My Wendy's™ mobile application on their iPhone® or Android™ by visiting the iTunes® App StoreSM, Google Play™ Store or wendys.com/app.Android and Google Play are trademarks of Google Inc. iPhone, iTunes and App Store are trademarks of Apple Inc.
