This new signature sandwich is now in restaurants across the country
TORONTO, Ontario, February 27, 2020 – Wendy’s® is now serving The Plantiful™, a plant-based burger that ensures flexitarians have a protein alternative that is full of taste. The Plantiful is crafted in Canada1 and as a testament to the brand’s loyalty to Canadian preferences in taste and quality, Wendy’s carefully formulated its own recipe in-house, a feat that no other competitor has accomplished for plant-based burgers in the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) industry.
“Plant-based product offerings have become an expectation of Canadian consumers. We developed a flexitarian option the Wendy’s Way— using high quality, flavorful ingredients — and this resulted in what we believe is the best plant-based burger available to Canadians,” says Lisa Deletroz, Senior Director, Marketing, Wendy’s Canada. “No one does food like Wendy’s, and the idea of offering the same product as other competitors was simply not an option for the Wendy’s Canada team.”
The Plantiful patty is a pea-based protein and comes standard with lettuce, onions, pickles, tomato, mayonnaise, ketchup and a slice of cheese on a premium bun. As with all Wendy’s sandwiches, The Plantiful is made-to-order so customers can customize theirs to include or exclude any ingredients.
Wendy’s is ensuring that the evolving preferences of consumers are met with The Plantiful. As more Canadians crave new plant-based food options, Wendy’s was thoughtful in its approach to create a product with the highest standards of taste and quality, all at an approachable price.

The Wendy's Company (Nasdaq: WEN) is committed to doing the right thing and making a positive difference in the lives of others. This is most visible through the Company's support of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption Canada and its signature Wendy's Wonderful Kids program, which seeks to find every child in the North American foster care system a loving, forever home.
