Breakfast, Value, Cheddar Whopper, Etc.

Breakfast is booming, we’re continually told. Mintel in July reported that more than 50% of consumers say they were ordering breakfast foods from foodservice outlets more often than one year ago. Breakfast is so big that it’s all-day at McDonald’s, Jack in the Box and some others. So why aren’t breakfast foods treated to the […]

Crowdfunding Burger-Bar Expansion

Finnish burger-bar chain Friends & Brgrs has reached its goal of raising approximately 1 million € though a crowdfunding campaign, and has done so much more quickly than it had expected.

Pricing, Promotions Push McD’s Growth

Pricing, Promotions Push McD’s Growth

A rich mix of ingredients—higher menu prices, lower commodity costs, continued customer enthusiasm for All Day Breakfast and McPick 2—combined to produce Q3 results for McDonald’s Corp. that exceeded the predictions of The Street and the brand’s doubters. For the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2016, global comparable sales increased 3.5%, with U.S. same-store sales up […]

Boxed Breakfasts and Bud Burgers

Monday again. Here’s what others were talking about while the rest of us were weekending and avoiding politics: All Day Breakfast at McDonald’s has spawned something new and potentially ground breaking at its Pacific NW stores: multi-person boxed breakfasts. The four-person NFL-tied Blitz Box in Seattle includes two Egg McMuffins, two Sausage McMuffins, two Sausage […]

Brunch, Breakfast, Burgers & Fries

Brunch, Breakfast, Burgers & Fries

Starbucks is increasingly more a QSR than a cafe. At the end of August, BurgerBusiness.com reported that Jack in the Box was testing a “Brunchfast” menu. Now we learn that at the same time, Starbucks began testing weekend (8 a.m. to 2 p.m.) brunch items of its own in 78 Pacific Northwest stores. As reported […]

Jack in the Box Tries ‘Brunchfast’ Menu

Jack in the Box Tries ‘Brunchfast’ Menu

In June, BurgerBusiness.com broke the story that Jack in the Box had trademarked the term “brunchfast.” The follow-up is that it has gone beyond trademark to a Brunchfast menu testing in Southern California. Credit for this goes to insidesocal.com’s Dine 909, which spotted it in Moreno Valley, Calif., in July. Brunchfast remains on the menu […]

McDonald’s, Coke, CBS Do Karaoke Promo

McDonald’s, Coke, CBS Do Karaoke Promo

I don’t stay up to watch CBS’s “The Late Late Show with James Corden” but I do get a kick out of watching his “Carpool Karaoke” videos. Corden and a pop star ride around Los Angeles in his car singing the guest’s hits (to which he amazingly has learned all the lyrics). He gets his […]
