Discussion and Poll: Fast Food Breakfast All Day
Sonic and Jack in the Box… they do it right. The entire menu is available at any time of day. Sometimes you can wake up craving a Sourdough Jack at 7am.
Other times, you’re just in the mood for some scrambled eggs and bacon in between a biscuit for dinner. What’s so wrong with that? The restaurants might argue that they are just not equipped to handle all menu items all the time. It’s a logistics nightmare and when 10:30am hits, the half-hour conversion away from breakfast goes into effect. Well I’m here to argue that if Jack can do it, everyone else can too. What fast food menu would you like to see available in its entirety all day? What breakfast menu items do you crave for lunch or dinner? For me, I’d be happy with Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Minis for dinner any day of the week. Some would argue that chicken isn’t really a breakfast food anyways.
So let’s consider the major fast food chains and see who’s out altogether. Wendy’s doesn’t have breakfast nationwide. I have yet to encounter breakfast at Arby’s, but it does exist. Taco Bell is still under going breakfast in test markets (and expanding rapidly). Dunkin’ Donuts has breakfast items available all day, but seriously, DD has always been about breakfast to me no matter how much they expand their other non-breakfast items. Which fast food establishments have breakfast only available at breakfast time? Who’s left from the major players? McDonald’s, Burger King, Subway, Chick-fil-A, and Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr.
Time to do a reader poll. Leave your vote and leave some comments. Who wants a McDonald’s Breakfast Burrito for dinner? A BK Croissan’Wich for lunch?
