McDonald’s To Offer All Day Breakfast Beginning October 6, 2015

1411666299147929485

McDonald’s Corp. is embarking on its biggest operational change in years as it tries to increase sales with plans to offer breakfast items all-day at its more than 14,300 U.S. restaurants starting October 6, 2015.

The move to all-day breakfast, which McDonald’s has been testing since March, was approved in a vote by franchisees last week and affirmed on Tuesday by a franchisee leadership council, the company said. It marks the latest new initiative under Chief Executive Steve Easterbrook, who took over on March 1 vowing to revamp the burger giant’s stale image and end a sales slump in its home market that began nearly three years ago.

McDonald’s customers for years have asked the company to sell breakfast items past the traditional 10:30 a.m. cutoff, but the challenges of cooking Egg McMuffins alongside Big Macs deterred the company. In an interview, McDonald’s USA President Mike Andres said it is the biggest strategic move the company has made since it rolled out its McCafe line of coffee and espresso drinks across the U.S. in 2009.

“This is the consumers’ idea. This is what they want us to do,” Andres said. “That’s why I think this could be the catalyst for our turnaround.”

The move could help McDonald’s franchisees who have struggled with slowing sales, though it also creates new costs and complexities. To address their concerns, McDonald’s began testing all-day breakfast about six months ago in San Diego and later in Nashville and Mississippi, and in June, convened a seven-member task force of franchisees to study a nationwide rollout.

Burger King New Fries: Lower Calorie, Crinkle-Cut ‘Satisfries’ Added To Menu

After unveiling its $1 French fry burger, Burger King isn’t done adding items to its menu. In an effort to add healthier options, BK announced its new lower calorie, crinkle-cut fries, “Satisfries,” on Monday.

“Satisfries” contain 190 calories and 8 grams of fat, which Burger King said is 30 percent fewer calories and 40 percent less fat than a serving of rival McDonald’s fries. The new fries have 270 calories, compared with 340 for a small order of regular fries.

The fries will hit Burger Kings on Tuesday at just 30 cents more than a regular order of French fries; “Satisfries” will cost $1.89 compared to $1.59 for regular fries.

“Satisfries” have fewer calories and less fat thanks to a new batter recipe and a crinkle-cut that doesn’t absorb as much oil in the frying process, the company said.

Burger King, though, said customers and fast food lovers alike will notice no difference in taste. The Daily Beast, which posted a review of the fries, agreed.

The impact of adding these fries will be huge since one in two Burger King customers order fries, for 56 million orders monthly. The move comes as consumer advocate groups pressure the U.S. food and beverage industry, especially fast-food chains, to offer healthier alternatives, since one-third of Americans are obese, Reuters reported.

Last month, Burger King unveiled its new “French Fry Burger,” costing $1 that consists of a standard burger topped with four French fries.

GuyFieri-0179-PKG_resized

Bryan Mytko, a New York-based programmer has built a parody website of Guy Fieri’s eatery at GuysAmericanKitchenAndBar.com that’s gone viral. The real website is GuysAmerican.com.

The spoof site shows a fake menu that includes items like “Guy’s Big Balls,” which are described as “two 4-pound Rice-A-Roni crusted mozzarella balls endangered with shaved lamb and pork and blasted with Guy’s signature Cadillac Cream sauce.”

Also listed is the “38 oz of super-saddened, Cheez-gutted wolf meat” for $49.95.

If you want to take a look at the real menu to Fieri’s actual New York City restaurant, click HERE. There you will find “Guy-Talian Nachos” and “Ain’t No Thang But a Chicken Wing”.
