Wendy’s isn’t the first to give away free food at its drive-thrus during the pandemic. Taco Bell has been giving away free tacos on Tuesdays with no purchase necessary.
Despite remaining open in its drive-thrus, Wendy’s saw lagging sales once stay-at-home orders went into effect in many states. Sales dropped 20% for the week ending March 22. It also temporarily closed hundreds of its restaurants worldwide.
