No need to jump out of bed and rush to McDonald's this morning. Today marks the first day the fast food chain will be serving breakfast all day long.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015:
Brace yourselves. Big news this morning.
You don’t need to rush to McDonald’s if you’re craving an Egg McMuffin — today marks the long-awaited first day that the fast food behemoth will serve breakfast all day.
But there’s a catch (for some). A BuzzFeed reporter yesterday uncovered that some stores will stop serving hash browns at 10:30 a.m.
The famed potato patties will be absent after normal breakfast hours in stores who have limited fryer space, as french fries are prepared in the same vats as hash browns, a McDonald’s spokesperson told BuzzFeed.
No word on whether the McDonald’s on Richland Avenue and East State Street will be affected.
