DUBLIN, Ohio, Oct. 13, 2014 // PRNewswire // --
Wendy's® is rallying Americans to unite under one cause and hashtag – #BBQ4merica – to shine a light on the widespread inaccessibility to quality barbecue across the United States, in celebration of Wendy's new BBQ Pulled Pork menu.
As part of this tongue-in-cheek cause campaign, Wendy's is championing a nationwide effort to give barbecue the well-earned title of National Dish of America, by going directly to the White House with an official White House "We the People" petition.
Help Wendy's in this noble endeavor by signing the petition asking for a Presidential Proclamation to make barbecue America's National Dish: http://wh.gov/ilDzm.
Wendy's recognizes the widespread inaccessibility to quality barbecue outside the traditional "Barbecue Belt" of the United States, and is providing a solution with three new hickory-smoked pulled pork offerings. The limited-time menu includes a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, BBQ Pulled Pork Cheeseburger and BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries, along with three custom-crafted sauces – Sweet, Smoky or Spicy – to fit consumers' personal barbecue style.
Now through Sunday, October 19, 2014
