    they had it previously but I never felt inclined to get it. Is this something people were clamoring for? Or is Wendy's just trying to insert itself into the news?

    Went to Tim Hortons this morning, attached to Wendys. They had it written on their window that they were now serving breakfast, but I saw nobody going through the line. I was tempted to get out of line and try it instead, but I pussed out.

    They're trying to make more money. Breakfast fast food is big business.

    I'm aware selling food from 7 AM to 1030 AM allows a fast food restaurant to make more money than if they didn't sell food during those hours.

    I'm going to assume you also know the breakfast margins are higher than other periods and give you the benefit of doubt, despite the simple response.

    So I guess I'm wondering why you asked the question of, "Or is Wendy's just trying to insert itself into the news?". Seems like there's a pretty obvious reason why they're doing this.

    I guess my ire was directed at the news article, not at Wendy's decision. It is obvious why they would do it. But not sure a fast food place bringing back its average breakfast menu is worth an Eater tweet.

    carry on

    “The Breakfast Baconator fits a lot into a bun: an egg, six strips of Applewood smoked bacon, one square sausage patty, two slices of American cheese and a Swiss cheese Hollandaise sauce”

    Gotcha. I'm wondering what they're going to do to differentiate...the menu as talked about really isn't that appealing.

    They dont have to be that different to get business. Sometimes it's about location and convenience. The nearest intersection to me has a Wendy's, Taco Bell, and a McDonald's. I'll most likely opt for Wendy's over those two on the days I want to grab something. Its that or drive 10 minutes to CFA or Hardees and fuck that on a work day.

    I bet that Taco Bell line is almost always empty...but they're really just doing breakfast as a side gig while they pay people to prep for the day

    Wendy’s has done breakfast a few times. It failed because their food was awful. Hopefully this time is different because I generally enjoy Wendy’s.

    I swing in once or twice a month and I don't think I've ever had another car in line. The breakfast crunch wrap thing honestly isn't bad. It's that or a chicken McGriddle at McDonalds. I just don't stop for breakfast that much but having another option at Wendy's will be cool.

    I stopped at a random Wendy's in southern Indiana a couple of years back that was open for breakfast. Seemed like a franchised location that did their own thing. Had biscuits and gravy. Was pretty good.I think if you let local owners choose their breakfast menu, it works out better

    Were you in one of the locations in 2013? It was limited to a few markets and didn’t last long at all. Their other breakfast menu was in the 80’s.

    Me neither, was more of an aside. The 2013 rollout fell in line with me working midnights and a lack of options so I was excited. Tasted like powdered eggs and pre cooked bacon. I was disappoint

    Apparently there's a Wendy's about 5 miles from me that already does breakfast with some of these items. Never knew.

    I've never worked in the food industry so pardon my ignorance, but what would need to be prepped at a Taco Bell? Doesn't everything come essentially pre-prepared in giant bags or boxes?
