McDonald’s Brings McGriddles to Breakfast Battle


No other chain has something like the McGriddle, McDonald’s pancake/muffin hybrid, which likely is why the chain has followed the coffee giveaway that ended yesterday with a new marketing push for McGriddle sandwiches.

Monday Meeting: KFC’s Breakfast; McRib’s Return

“Everyone’s attracted by breakfast,” Dunkin’ Brands Chairman-CEO Nigel Travis told analysts last week. “Everyone’s particularly attracted by coffee.” Breakfast is attractive enough that KFC has begun offering a morning meal at selected stores in Sydney, Australia.
