Wendy’s is trying to brighten up people’s day amid the coronavirus pandemic.
While the fast-food chain’s restaurants remain closed for dine-in customers in order to slow the spread of the virus, it is still open for delivery and drive-thru orders.
For those getting their Wendy’s fix at the drive-thru, the company is now offering a free Jr. Frosty with every order.
Customers just need to indicate if they want a vanilla or chocolate Jr. Frosty and it will be added to their order on the house.
The promotion is only being offered for a limited time and currently only available on drive-thru orders.
While the chain had previously allowed take-out orders, they have amended their policy and removed the option of customers entering locations to get their orders.
“Carryout service will no longer be offered in most Wendy’s restaurants as of March 22 in the U.S., Canada and other International markets as appropriate,” the company said in a statement.
“This means most of our dining rooms will now be completely closed to the public, including for carryout orders.”
Wendy’s has also waived delivery fees on Postmates and GrubHub for those wanting their meals to come to their front door. The offer is good on all orders placed on the food delivery apps for $10 or more through April 6th.
In response to the spread of coronavirus and to promote social distancing, most major fast-food chains have transitioned to take-out, drive-thru and delivery only. In addition, many are also offering free delivery at least through the month of March.
Burger King also recently announced they would be giving away free kids meals nationwide through their app for takeout or drive-thru.
