CHICAGO, Illinois ( The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Starting on October 6, you will be able order your Sausage or Egg McMuffins or hotcakes at McDonalds — all day!
The fast-food giant is finally giving in to customer pleas to extend its breakfast menu beyond the current 10:30 a.m. cutoff, The Washington Post reports.
Previously, McDonald’s argued that its 14,000 franchise restaurants don’t have the capacity to make breakfast and everything else on their menu at the same time. But with the slump in sales and growing competition from other fast food chains, McDonald’s says it can no longer afford to ignore its customers.
However, the all-day fare won’t include everything on the McDonald’s regular breakfast menu. Depending on the location, sausage burritos, hot cakes, Egg McMuffins and biscuit sandwiches will be served.
How about the Spam or Portuguese island breakfast served at McDonald’s locations in Hawaii? Nope, says McDonald’s. “It will be too difficult to be slicing and frying spam and Portuguese sausage, scrambling eggs and cooking rice at the same time as preparing sandwiches and burgers.”
In protest of the decision to exclude the rice breakfast favorite of the islands, Hawaii residents and tourists will be picketing McDonald’s outlets on Oahu, Kauai, Maui and the Big Island every day during the week of October 5 to press the fast food chain to reconsider its discriminatory decision.
The Adobo Chronicles® will be covering the protests live from Waikiki. Stay tuned.
