I have been meaning to do a follow up to this post! I wanted to share a bit about the trip in general and my experience as a whole. If you have followed me for any length of time you know I am a bit of an introvert, I don’t exactly like to be away from my family and can count on one hand the times that I have traveled alone. I had nerves in my throat for a few days about the whole thing. Plus for all I knew I was going to be a big nerd on camera, completely shut down and no words come out for 24 hours.
I stepped off of the plane and expected to see one camera guy…. you can see by the pictures that a whole crew was waiting for me. And you can probably tell by the beginning of this video that I was sooooo nervous.
Well, everything was fine in a matter of minutes. The film guys were so incredibly kind, the Wendy’s team made me feel so at home and welcomed…everyone just put my nerves to ease in a matter of moments!
That night I got to meet the other bloggers and everyone was just absolutely amazing. I don’t know much about food (I am in a full-on attempt to learn more as of late) so they were so great with me and taught me so much. It was nice to take four completely different girls who have a common thread (blogging) and instantly have so much to talk about.
The second day we went to the Wendy’s headquarters and I was blown away. The entire feel was modern and chic. The Wendy’s team was so kind and even gave us a tour of their taste kitchen and showed us where they conduct all of their taste testing. We heard from a variety of different people and all of our questions were answered.
I would work with Wendy’s again in a heartbeat. It means a lot to me how someone treats another…. I know that has nothing to do with food and food was the point of me being there but as someone who has worked with a variety of companies and sees everything across the spectrum, I can honestly say they were wonderful and it was truly a pleasure being involved in this project!
