There's a common sentiment among people who work in radio, TV, and print that goes, "If it's free, it's for me." You don't have to be a member of the media to take advantage of Wendy's free food offer in the Rockford area, just someone who appreciates something for nothing.

The Fast Food Breakfast Wars Continue

Although it's a nice deal for all of us who make up the general public, I think it's safe to assume that Wendy's upcoming weekend free breakfast sandwich promotion is yet another shot fired in the fast food breakfast wars (not to be confused with the fast food chicken sandwich wars), with the ultimate goal being domination of the drive-thru breakfast market.

When you consider that Wendy's decided to jump into the breakfast wars at what should have been the worst possible time (March of 2020, the beginning of the pandemic), yet still achieved some pretty amazing successes, you come to realize just how important it is to many people to grab a bag of breakfast even if they're not heading to work or school.

Here's How The Wendy's Free Breakfast Sandwich Giveaway Works

Here in the Rockford area, and around the country, participating Wendy’s restaurants will be offering free croissant breakfast sandwiches during regular breakfast hours only, and there is no purchase necessary. You get to choose from the Sausage, Egg and Swiss Croissant or the Bacon, Egg and Swiss Croissant (Wendy's only other croissant sandwich, the Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant, is not part of this promotion).
