Wendend's french toast sticks are available in its breakfast menu

The chain is adding french toast sticks to its breakfast menu beginning August 15. It is described as having the perfect balance of a soft, custardy interior and crisp, golden-brown crust with delicious vanilla notes, made from thick Texas-style toast. Each purchase includes a syrup for dipping.

French toast sticks are available in four-piece or six-piece a la carte option and in a six-piece combo. It marks Wendy's first sweet addition to its breakfast menu, which has been dominated by savory items, such as the Breakfast Baconator, and the spicy, including the recently added Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit.

Carl Loredo, Wendy's chief marketing officer, told CNN Business, "When we jumped into the breakfast menu, we were very specific with the items we brought forth, but always knew that we would bring sweet in the right way." Customer demand and research led Wendy's to add french toast sticks, with portability playing a huge role in its addition, Loredo said. He said that Wendy's isn't taking anything off the menu.

As we launched breakfast, the goal was to correct the wrongs of the boring and bland breakfasts that were out there, he said, adding that the french toast sticks continue to build on that promise. The starting price for the four-piece a la carte option is $2.79 and the six-piece combo is ranging from $6.19 to $6.19 for the six-piece combo that includes seasoned potatoes and a drink.

In recent months, breakfast hasn't been enough to boost sales.

Adding french toast sticks ahead of the back-to-school season could help juice Wendy's sales, especially as its rivals bounce back.
