STREET. LUIS (KTVI) – Wendy’s chili, which has had a cult following since it was introduced in November 1969, is coming to grocery stores soon. The chili will now be canned and available for purchase outside of the restaurant.
In February, Conagra Brands, a packaged food company that owns dozens of popular brands, revealed the news during a conference of the Consumer Analyst Group of New York.
“When the craving for Wendy’s chili hits, you now have two delicious ways to get your fix: in retail stores or in our restaurants,” Wendy’s global chief marketing officer Carl Loredo said on a Wednesday. Press release.
Wendy’s began offering chili more than 50 years ago as a way to use up leftover hamburger meat and reduce waste, founder Dave Thomas explained in his memoir “Dave’s Way,” according to crushed.
Wendy’s Chili with Beans will be available in the chili section of grocery stores and “select online retailers” this summer.
The fast food chain is the latest to offer certain menu items at retailers across the country. Taco Bell, for example, sells taco seasoning in supermarkets, while Chick-fil-A recently he brought his sauces to the store shelves.
