Wendy’s was already on the precipice of a major renaissance after last year’s announcement that Spicy Chicken Nuggets were coming out of retirement. As if that wasn’t enough, everyone’s favorite redheaded fast-food chain dropped another major bombshell on us—a nationwide breakfast menu. After teasing us with the concept in fall of 2019, Wendy’s has finally set a date for when we can indulge in a Breakfast Baconator, and we know we’ll be jumping out of bed to be in line.
Wendy’s Is Where to Be This March
Wendy’s is one of the more popular fast food burger joints that hasn’t yet offered breakfast as a widespread option. Prior to this announcement, a few hundred Wendy’s locations have had breakfast available in some form. However, all restaurants will sell a morning meal as early as March 2, when the nationwide breakfast menu officially launches.
Naturally, Wendy’s was rather cheeky about it via Twitter, going as far as tweeting McDonald’s in reference to their ongoing rivalry. We have to say—we’re kind of on Wendy’s side this time around. (That may change once we get our hands on the all-new McChicken Biscuits, though.)

The new includes feature items like a Breakfast Baconator, a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit, Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant and Frosty-ccinos.
We Just Can’t Wait for a Taste
According to Wendy’s President and Chief Commercial Officer Kurt Kane, each sandwich includes a fresh, hand-cracked egg, and the taste is so fresh it’s made to have you craving more than one. The Breakfast Baconator, in particular, comes with egg, a signature sausage patty and six strips of Applewood smoked bacon. Now that’s how breakfast should be done.
Personally, I’m seriously excited for that Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit. Breakfast biscuit sandwiches are such an under-appreciated menu item.
