DUBLIN, Ohio, July 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Wendy’s reignites the bacon battles with Baconfest – a summer event jampacked with deals including a free Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger AND $0 delivery fee on DoorDash with $10 Wendy’s purchase, and even free Baconator® Fries with any purchase using mobile order on Wendy’s app, from July 16 – August 25. Don’t forget, head to Twitch from July 17 – 18 to snag a code to redeem a free Baconator® on us.

WHAT:
As the home of the #1 selling bacon cheeseburger*, and quite frankly, the Boss of Bacon, Wendy's is launching an epic bacon celebration – Baconfest. Why? Because Wendy's bacon is always worth celebrating and honestly, doesn't need a reason.

Starting today, Wendy's is kicking off Baconfest exclusively with DoorDash, offering its bacon-loving fanatics a free Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger and $0 delivery fee with a minimum of $10 Wendy's purchase for a limited time using code BACONFEST.** Free bacon and $0 delivery fee? Yes, please!

It doesn't end there. On July 17, Wendy's may be streaming on Twitch and may have a special code for free Baconators® with any Wendy's purchase via DoorDash while supplies last. Shh, you didn't hear that from us…

But wait, there's still more. Through August 25, you can use the Wendy's mobile app to receive free Baconator® Fries with any purchase when you use Wendy's app to mobile order. We told you it's a celebration so of course Wendy's is offering its best bacon products to its best bacon-obsessed fans.

"As the number one seller of bacon cheeseburgers across the fast food industry, no one does bacon like Wendy's. You can call it an obsession and you'd be right," said Carl Loredo, Wendy's U.S. chief marketing officer. "We're giving our customers what they want most – the ultimate bacon celebration. Why? Because our customers deserve it, and because…Bacon."

WHEN:
Fans can take advantage of the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger and Baconator Fries offers now.  Offers available through July 21 and August 25, respectively, or until supplies last. Terms apply.
