The world changed at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 6.
For many years, McDonald’s said that it was pretty much impossible to serve all-day breakfast. The thinking was that the restaurants were too busy, and the kitchens were too small, to handle breakfast orders on top of burgers and the rest of the menu.
But after receiving tens of thousands of demands for all-day breakfast on social media—and after finding itself in a fairly desperate situation in which sales have declined substantially—McDonald’s has capitulated, and the era of all-day breakfast kicks off on Tuesday, October 6. That means that around the nation, McDonald’s customers can order breakfast items past the usual cut-off time of 10:30 a.m. So today, you can expect plenty of fast food enthusiasts to be enjoying McDonald’s breakfast for lunch, brunch, dinner, a mid-afternoon snack, and anything and everything in between.
Here are a handful of things to take note of concerning the arrival of McDonald’s all-day breakfast.
