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.

Wendy’s adds newest quality ingredient to its menu: fresh mozzarella cheese. For a limited time consumers can savor the new Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Salad and Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich, each prepared daily in restaurant and made with simple, yet bold ingredients for an unforgettable fresh-eating experience.

"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.
