EXPIRED Wendy’s has Frosty Key Tags on sale for the Holidays; buy one for $1 and get a free Jr. Frosty with every purchase for all of 2016.
Proceeds from each $1 purchase of a Frosty Key Tag will go to help finding families for children waiting in foster care. Wendy’s is featuring the special as a way for customers to participate in Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. The Frosty Key Tag is available through the end of this year.
“We hope consumers will embrace Giving Tuesday and the holiday season as a time to make a difference in the lives of children waiting in foster care,” said Liz Geraghty, Wendy’s vice president of brand marketing. “It’s unacceptable that 130,000 children in North America won’t have permanent, loving families to spend the holidays with, and we are passionately working to change this reality so that all children can have the childhood they deserve.”
The Frosty Key Tag Program is one of many initiatives Wendy’s implements across its restaurants throughout the year to help raise funds and awareness for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and its signature program Wendy’s Wonderful Kids.® The program supports special adoption professionals who focus exclusively on finding homes for children who have been waiting the longest in the foster care system through a child-focused model. Children referred to the program are up to three times more likely to get adopted. Wendy’s and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption recently celebrated the 5,000th child adopted through the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program.
About Wendy’s (from Wikipedia)
Wendy’s (formerly branded as Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers before February 25, 2013) is an international fast food chain restaurant founded by Dave Thomas on November 15, 1969, in Columbus, Ohio, United States.
As of March 2010, Wendy’s was the world’s third largest hamburger fast food chain with approximately 6,650 locations, following McDonald’s 31,000+ locations and Burger King’s 22,000+ locations. In 2011, Wendy’s sales exceeded those of Burger King for the first time in the company’s history. With sales of $8.5 billion (USD), the company ranked number two in hamburger chains, although Burger King still has far more restaurants.
Wendy’s menu consists primarily of hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, French fries and beverages, including the Frosty. The company does not have a signature sandwich, such as the Big Mac or the Whopper. Instead, the square burger patties (which are fresh ground beef rather than round frozen patties) it uses in its burgers are the signature item.
