Could Wendy’s turn a cult following into a national phenomenon with the relaunch of Spicy Nuggets? Wendy’s discontinued Spicy Nuggets in 2017 – but customers on Twitter demanded their return. Our secret: we planned to, only after establishing consumer urgency. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
In 2019, amidst zero category growth, we challenged Twitter users to earn them back in a viral tweet moment. The scarcity mindset we fostered drove a feeding frenzy at launch, with sales 40% above forecast and 26% of sales from new/lapsed customers.
