After Burger King announced yesterday the expansion of their delivery service in Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles, the president and CEO of rival brand McDonald’s gave a hint to his company’s possible next move.
McDonald’s President and CEO Don Thompson, in an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street,” when asked whether there was potential for McDonald’s to serve breakfast all day replied: “Yes, we would consider it. We have the focus on our existing menu, but we have looked at breakfast across the day. We have it in some markets around the world.”
He added that McDonald’s has looked at some “innovative ways” to expand breakfast hours for customers.
“I think we’ll be seeing some of those things in the near future,” Thompson.
Thompson also mentioned McDonald’s could be rolling out a delivery service as well as a guest rewards program in the near future. Thompson said his company was doing everything to meet the changing needs of their customers, including offering healthier menu options such as wraps and salads.
“Tastes have been changing and it’s just that we as McDonald’s have continued to evolve,” he said.
