Read on to find out why McDonald’s stopped serving all-day breakfast and if it will ever come back.
Why Doesn’t McDonald’s Have All-Day Breakfast?
McDonald’s stopped serving all-day breakfast in March 2020 to simplify kitchen operations. The restaurant chain offers a large selection of menu items, and rotating them at specific times has resulted in better customer service.
Having all of the necessary ingredients to cook breakfast and lunch menu items at any given time requires more kitchen space than most McDonald’s restaurants have. In addition, different equipment is used to prepare these items, which also takes up space.
Having said that, some McDonald’s locations may have a limited all-day breakfast menu, as stated by the company in an X post. So be sure to check with your nearest restaurant.
Will McDonald’s Bring Back All-Day Breakfast?
There is no definite answer to whether McDonald’s will bring back all-day breakfast. At the same time, breakfast lovers have been vocal about their desire for its return on social media, and the restaurant chain has publicly left the possibility of that open by saying they are evaluating if a comeback could be a possibility and how they could make it happen.
Hi, Evan. We initially removed All Day Breakfast from the menu to simplify operations in our kitchens, which we saw provided better speed of service and order accuracy for our customers. We’re evaluating if and how we will bring All Day Breakfast back to our menus.— McDonald’s (@McDonalds) July 24, 2020
