McDonald's USA Evolves Menu With New Freshly Prepared Premium McWrap Sandwiches 
Customers Across the U.S. Can Choose From Three Varieties Featuring
Fresh Vegetables, Grilled or Crispy Chicken, and Signature Sauces 
OAK BROOK, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/13 --  McDonald's introduces
the new "Premium McWrap" in restaurants nationwide. The freshly
prepared sandwich wraps are part of McDonald's commitment to offering
customers a variety of relevant tastes and new food choices. All
three varieties of the tortilla-wrapped entree feature fresh
vegetables, grilled or crispy chicken breast along with signature
sauces such as seasoned rice vinegar, sweet chili, or creamy garlic
served in a convenient hand-held package designed for eating
on-the-go. 
Customers can choose from three meal-sized Premium McWraps, including
the "Chicken & Bacon Premium McWrap," "Sweet Chili Chicken Premium
McWrap" or "Chicken & Ranch Premium McWrap" for a recommended price
of $3.99 (price and participation may vary). The Premium McWrap is
McDonald's first permanent menu item to include sliced cucumbers and
its first hand-held entree to include fresh spring mix. Varieties
range from 360 to 600 calories depending on customer's choice of
grilled or crispy chicken.  
"Premium McWraps are a great example of how we can bring innovative
new tastes to our customers in the U.S. by leveraging successful
global menu items, in this case, from McDonald's Europe," said
McDonald's USA senior director of culinary innovation Dan Coudreaut.
"Also, the packaging design was an important challenge for us as we
wanted to ensure our customers can enjoy each bite; whether dining in
our restaurants or on-the-go." 
The Premium McWrap made its way to the U.S. from McDonald's Europe,
where in 2004 it launched in Poland as one of their most successful
menu items. The sandwiches were tested on menus in two U.S. cities
before appearing in McDonald's restaurants nationwide this week.
