More than 800 booklets have been sold so far. Each booklet contains five free Junior Frosty coupons.

Sherl Grow, general manager of the Wendy’s on Robert C. Byrd Drive in Beckley, said the reception has been so positive that many locations have even run out of books.The community has really bought into this program,” she explained. “We're having people come in every day just to ask if we have the coupons to give out for Halloween too.”

Grow said to check with your local Wendy’s to see if they have any booklets left.
