 Wendy's now offers Fat Free French; Reduced Fat, Reduced Calorie Blue Cheese; and Reduced Fat, Reduced Calorie Italian dressings.
 "Our message to consumers is the biggest choices of fresh salads are at Wendy's, and our new dressings give our customers even more choices of healthy foods," said Charles W. Rath, Wendy's executive vice president of marketing.
 The new dressings are available at the Garden Spot(R) Salad Bar and in single-serve packets for Wendy's popular Fresh Salads To Go.
 As an acknowledged salad authority in the quick service industry, Wendy's recognizes that today's consumer wants more options as salads continue to grow in popularity. Consumers also want healthy dressings that taste good.
 "We have carefully developed dressings that let us offer customers a lower or reduced fat content with the full flavor customers expect from Wendy's," said Rath.
 A two-tablespoon serving (or one ladle) of the new dressings contains:
 Fat Free French Dressing:
 -- 35 calories
 -- 0 grams fat
 Reduced Fat, Reduced Calorie Italian Dressing:
 -- 40 calories
 -- 3.5 grams fat (0 grams saturated fat)
 Reduced Fat, Reduced Calorie Blue Cheese Dressing:
 -- 65 calories
 -- 7 grams fat (2 grams monounsaturated fat, 3 grams polyunsaturated fat, 2 grams saturated fat)
 Wendy's continues to offer its full line of regular salad dressings for its Garden Spot(R) Salad Bar and Fresh Salads To Go, bringing the total number of dressings to 13.
 Wendy's was the first chain to offer salad bars nationwide in 1979. Today's Garden Spot(R) Salad Bar features more than 50 different ingredient choices. Wendy's five Fresh Salads To Go introduced last spring include Grilled Chicken Salad, Deluxe Garden Salad, Side Salad, Caesar Side Salad, and Taco Salad. Employees at Wendy's restaurants wash and chop fresh produce and prepare the five salads fresh in the restaurant each morning.
 Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers restaurants were founded in 1969 by R. David Thomas, who named the chain after one of his daughters. Wendy's has more than 4,000 restaurants worldwide and annual sales of $3.6 billion.
