McDonald’s expanding all-day breakfast menu

Effective in September, More breakfast sandwiches will be offered as part of all-day breakfast menu

McDonald’s will expand its all-day breakfast offerings at its U.S. restaurants, beginning in September.

According to a news release from the quick service restaurant chain, the main additions to the all-day menu will be a larger selection of biscuit sandwiches, McMuffins and McGriddles. The revised all-day breakfast menu will include: Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin with Egg, Sausage McMuffin, Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, Sausage Biscuit with Egg, Sausage Biscuit, Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Sausage McGriddles, Hotcakes, Hotcakes and Sausage, Sausage Burrito, Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait and Hashbrowns. Some of those offerings will vary by restaurant.

The all-day breakfast menu, which has given the U.S. egg industry a boost, was introduced at all locations in the U.S. in October 2015. It was approved after it tested an all-day breakfast menu at selected markets in California, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Shortly thereafter, the company released its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015, reporting that sales at U.S. restaurants had increased 5.7 percent since it started serving breakfast foods all day long.

“All-day breakfast was clearly the primary driver of the quarter,” Steve Easterbrook, McDonald’s CEO, told investors at the time. “We knew it would be.”
