Now you can personalize your meals based on the calories you choose with a new mobile app from Wendy’s – and it’s FREE!
Taking a unique approach to fast-food at your fingertips, Wendy’s is releasing a new mobile application that allows customers to personalize their meals based on the amount of calories they choose.
Customers can create meals in two ways: by selecting a calorie range suitable to their dietary needs that prompts a list of meal options, or by building a meal by choosing specific menu items to reach their calorie goals. Customers can then personalize each menu item in the meal, just as they can at any Wendy’s restaurant. From adding extra crinkle cut pickles on their Dave’s Hot ‘N Juicy Single cheeseburger to removing the creamy red jalapeno dressing on the Baja Chicken Salad, customers have free reign to customize their tastiest, calorie-conscious creations, all on their smartphone.
- Additional nutrition information for each individual menu item selected;
- A “Favorites” section where customers can store their best menu creations; and
- Geo-location to locate nearby restaurants so customers can turn their virtual meal into reality.
Future editions may include expanded nutrition information, digital couponing and mobile payment.
Whether they’re on their lunch break or in our drive-thru line, customers looking for nutrition guidance can use our mobile app to easily customize meals that are right for them. The nutrition information section on Wendy’s website is the most visited area, especially before meal time. Like the website, this app gives customers the information they need to make good meal choices.
Resource Interactive, a digital marketing agency based in Columbus, OH, worked with Wendy’s to develop the new app.
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.
Wendy’s worked with their team of registered dietitians to ensure calorie counts were accurate for assembled menu items and for each individual ingredient. For nutrition advice and news from Wendy’s RDs, follow them on Twitter at @WendysRDs (www.twitter.com/WendysRDs).
