McDonald's extends breakfast hours until 11am in UK trial06/12/2019
We have all been there – rushing to grab a McDonald’s breakfast before it finishes only to discover on arrival that they have switched to the lunch menu.
It’s a very sad moment. So much so, that the fast food chain has decided to trial extending their breakfast menu beyond 10.30am from today.
If the pilot is successful and people are queuing up for their beloved McMuffins beyond the usual cut-ff time, McDonald’s said it will officially extend breakfast hours for the whole nation until 11am, reported the news site.
The trial is set to run until June 24 and it is the first time in the chain’s 25-year history that the hours have been changed.
Currently the iconic menu starts at 5am and ends at 10.30am but the fast food giant has long been facing growing pressure from customers to make McMuffins available until late morning.
Unfortunately the trial won’t be running at every restaurant in the country, instead only seven will be running the breakfast menu until 11am, according to Mirror Online.
But it’s good news for McDonald’s lovers in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, as numerous restaurants in the area have been chosen to run the six-week trial.
The chosen restaurants in Portsmouth include Commercial Road, Cosham, Ocean Retail Park, Fratton Park, and North Harbour.
Meanwhile, the Isle of Wight’s restaurants in Ryde and Newport will be the lucky ones.
McDonald’s franchisee Grant Copper, who owns and operates the restaurants trialling extended breakfast service in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, said: ‘I’m thrilled to be bringing this service to my customers, and look forward to hearing their feedback.’
