ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – How does an Egg McMuffin for dinner sound? You can now order off the McDonald’s breakfast menu anytime you like. On Tuesday the fast food giant rolled out its much-anticipated all-day breakfast menu.
“Now, customers don’t have to rush here and get through all the lines at 10:30 in the morning. It’s just good to get them in and get them out real fast and give them something they love,” said St. Petersburg McDonald’s employee Norgeia Goldsmith.
“I love breakfast. I could eat it at any time,” customer Diane Barnard said.
The Egg McMuffin is arguably the most beloved McDonald’s breakfast item. The new menu has some people wondering about the pinch it could put on the already limited egg supplies and how it could affect egg prices.
“Usually on a weekday, we crack 350 of them. On the weekends, it is much more. Now, we are anticipating doing 400 to 500 per day as the program goes into effect,” St. Petersburg McDonald’s franchise owner Missy Stefanos said.
Earlier this year, the outbreak of the avian flu in the United States sent price tags skyrocketing, up to a record $2.57 per dozen this summer, according to United States Department of Agriculture.
McDonald’s is already a huge consumer of eggs. Every year, the fast food giant cracks open more than 2 billion eggs in the United States alone.
Now, that number is expected to jump.
Not all breakfast menu items will be available all day at all locations, but most of the classic favorites will be. Below is a list of all items available all day in the Tampa area:
- Egg McMuffin
