A late-night breakfast at McDonald’s may soon be available across the nation. According to the Chicago Tribune, the chain restaurant has introduced After Midnight, a test menu that offers value items from the breakfast and regular menus.
The menu is limited to selection of products from the breakfast and lunch menu, according to Burger Business. From 12 A.M. to 4 A.M., customers can order lunch items, such as fries, Chicken McNuggets, and Big Mac, with breakfast items such as hash browns, hot cakes, and Egg White Delight. McCafe drinks and desserts are also available.
The new menu is now available in Delaware, Bryan and College Station, Texas, Rockford, Illinois, and in northern Indiana. McDonald’s would be the first fast-food chain to introduce a late-night breakfast and lunch menu if they decided to launch it nationwide.
A challenge to provide this menu involves creating an effective way to simultaneously serve breakfast and lunch items, J.M Owens, the president of the Greater Atlanta McDonald’s Operators Association, told Burger Business. The lack of space on the grills limits the available menu options.
Despite this challenge, the After Midnight menu is a step forward in expanding menu options for late-night consumers.
