Burger King Builds a Chicken Big King

Burger King is introducing the Chicken Big King, a further evolution of the Big King burger it unveiled last November and then increased in size in February. The new sandwich’s build remains the same as with the previous two iterations—with lettuce, pickles, onions, American cheese and King sauce on a three-layer, toasted sesame-seed bun —just [...]

Addenda: A&B Burgers Shifts to Full Service

Some interesting bits, pieces and loose ends from the day:

A few weeks back I wrote about A&B Burgers, a Salem, Mass., burger bar that opened in December. By January it already was listening to customers and making changes, including increasing the size of its burgers by 1 oz. each without increasing prices.

Mighty Wings Return at 5 for $3

“You will see wings again in the U.S. business,” McDonald’s Corp. CEO Don Thompson vowed last October in an earnings call with analysts. And he makes good on that this week with a limited-time revival of Mighty Wings at what McDonald’s hopes will be a more attractive price: five for $3.

Mighty Wings aren’t flying high with some McDonald’s franchisees. The latest survey of operators conducted by Mark Kalinowski, restaurant analyst at Janney Montgomery Scott, finds many compliments for the wings themselves but some disappointment with sales.

If you thought McDonald’s broke the mold when it created the McRib, think again. In Malaysia, McDonald’s has introduced the Chicken McRib sandwich, and there’s no reason why this idea couldn’t be imported to the U.S.

This isn’t simply a standard chicken sandwich bearing the McRib name. This is a chicken patty molded like the [...]

Available through November, the bone-in chicken wings will be sold in 3, 5, and 10 pieces starting at $2.99. The company did not address other items mentioned in the operator's Facebook post. [...]

McDonald’s Responding with Slimmer Menus

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kyqjQTCRGw”>McValue

McDonald’s Corp. releases Q1 2013 sales results on Friday and the numbers aren’t expected to be pretty. Or positive. A 1.5% decrease in global comp sales for February after a 1.9% decline in January have fairly well sealed the deal on the quarter. There also are signals that consumer confidence and spending are still fragile [...]

Chicken Sandwiches Pass Burgers on QSR Menus

For decades a burger and fries have been the fast-food paradigm but data compiled for BurgerBusiness.com by researcher Mintel show that that’s no longer valid. Chicken sandwiches have surpassed beef burgers in number on QSR menus.

The shift actually took place in 2010 when beef prices spiked. But rather than being a [...]
