Wendy’s is bringing the cheese with limited-time aged Gouda and Swiss Gruyere Cheese Sauce. They will take center stage in the new Gouda Bacon Cheeseburger and Bacon Fondue Fries.

Kurt Kane, Chief Concept & Marketing Officer, Wendy's“Nobody creates a cheeseburger and fries experience like Wendy’s, and our new Gouda Bacon Cheeseburger and Bacon Fondue Fries are no exception,” said Kurt Kane, Wendy’s Chief Concept & Marketing Officer. “Our oven-baked bacon and fresh, never frozen, beef are already famous for being delicious. Now we are combining them with aged Gouda and a Swiss Gruyere cheese sauce that are ready to play their own starring role.”

With all of the cheese needed for these tasty new products, I wanted to learn more. I spoke with Frank Vamos, Director, Brand Communications for Wendy’s, to find out more about the company’s sourcing.

He told me, “The aged Gouda is made in Wisconsin and comes from a supplier that is in its 4th generation of cheese making.”

As for the fries, he said, “the Swiss Gruyere cheese sauce was custom crafted exclusively for Wendy’s and is produced in Tipton, ID.”

While the cheeses used in the sauce making are not local to Tipton, Vamos assured that they are all produced domestically.
