McDonald's To Start Serving Breakfast In 42 Branches

McDonald's To Start Serving Breakfast In 42 Branches

In news that will bring some normality back to your hangovers, McDonald's has FINALLY confirmed that its breakfast menu will start to make its phased return from Wednesday 24 June.

The chain will be extending its opening hours in 42 branches, which had previously open from 11am until 10pm. And although the full menu won't be back just yet, we can confirm that hash browns, McMuffins and pancakes will all be served.

The email read: "As with our main menu, we will have a limited menu at breakfast but we've kept the classics - hash browns, McMuffins and pancakes all return.

"Unfortunately, whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines, we are unable to serve porridge, bagels and our Breakfast Wrap.

"This is because we have fewer people in the kitchen."

We can certainly work with that.

A previous email had said that the company would start trialing its breakfast service.

The fast food giant has been reopening its UK sites after they closed down as a result of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Confirming the news, McDonald's UK & Ireland CEO Paul Pomroy said: "Over the last four weeks, we have carefully reopened over 1,000 restaurants for Drive-thru or McDelivery, only progressing to new channels and more restaurants when we were confident that we could provide a safe working environment for our people.

"Following a closed test in London last month, I am pleased to confirm that we will begin reopening for takeaway and click and collect.

"Starting on Wednesday 17 June, in 11 Roadchef service station locations, we will welcome motorway users back inside our restaurants for the first time since March.

"We're taking our time to get this right, reviewing our processes before we gradually roll-out to high streets, towns and city centres from 24 June onwards."

As part of the move, the burger giant has said that a series of safety measures are being implemented to keep customers safe, with a limit on the number of customers allowed in at one time, one-way systems and no seating.

McDonald's has also confirmed that toilets will remain closed to customers.
