The day has finally come. Popular fast-food chain Wendy's is firing up the grills again for early morning customers and is relaunching a nationwide breakfast menu. That's right, you no longer have to dream about enjoying a breakfast baconator on your way to the office, because Wendy's breakfast menu is rolling out nationwide next year.
While only 300 Wendy's restaurants currently serve breakfast, the new rollout will bring quick-service breakfast to over 6,000 locations across the nation. Not only does that mean new breakfast items to grab on the go, but it also means some pretty incredible growth opportunities for the company. According to an announcement, the franchisees are looking to hire over 20,000 new employees to make breakfast possible.
The New Wendy's Breakfast Menu

Had to do it for the gram. @wendys breakfast is debuting nationwide next week, but we’re lucky here in Columbus to get a little sneak peek. I went with the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit - sweet, savory and all kinds of extra deliciousness when you add applewood smoked bacon. Tip: See if you can add extra honey butter, just a tiny bit dry. 🍯 Pleasantly delighted with the Chocolate Frosty®-ccino 👉🏽 smooth, cold-brewed coffee swirled with their legendary chocolate Frosty mix and served over ice. Not as sweet as I thought it would be, which was perfect. Quite tasty. ☕️ Even tho they messed up our entire mobile order (didn’t realize until it was back home) and we didn’t get the other sandwiches we ordered, we will definitely be back again for their breakfast. Yum!
According to the company, the new menu will include items like the Breakfast Baconator, Frosty-ccino, and Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit. "The menu features signature items that take the best of Wendy's, from Applewood smoked bacon to the Frosty, and creatively delivers them to fans for breakfast," the chain explains in a statement.
Meet the Breakfast Baconator, Wendy's take on the classic breakfast sandwich and includes sausage patties, eggs and six crispy slices of bacon. The Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is a take on the classic breakfast chicken sandwich with buttery and flaky biscuits and to wash it all down, grab a Frosty-ccino, which is a combo of a Frosty and cold brew coffee. It's like a Starbucks Frappuccino on steroids.
Does Wendy's Have Breakfast?
Yes and no. This isn't the first time the brand has tried to join McDonald's and Taco Bell in their breakfast offerings. Back in 2012, the fast-food restaurant experimented with a breakfast expansion, however, after a year it was deemed a total flop. The menu was uninspired and offered nothing you couldn't get at Starbucks or McDonald's. The brand pulled breakfast from all but 300 stores. So let's hope this menu stays a little longer.
