Here’s what’s on Wendy’s new breakfast menu

Wendy's plans nationwide breakfast launch for 2020

Wendy's announced they will start serving breakfast nationwide starting in 2020, including all locations in the Hudson Valley. The menu features signature items including the Breakfast Baconator®, Frosty-ccino, and Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit.

Wendy's, which now sells breakfast at 300 restaurants, said they will hire about 20,000 people as part of the $20 million expansion.

However, it's going to be an expensive The company plans to hire roughly 20,000 new workers for the initiative.

The nationwide launch calls for an investment of about $20 million, according to the release.

The Breakfast Baconator: An egg, six strips of Applewood smoked bacon, a breakfast sausage patty, two slices of American cheese, and swiss cheese hollandaise sauce on a bun. "We believe we have the right team and structure in place, and we put Wendy's fan favorites on our breakfast menu to set us apart from the competition".

The Honey Butter Chicken Sandwich: Fried chicken and whipped honey butter on a biscuit. Shares dipped about 3% after the market closed Monday on the news. Wendy's has previously tried pushing breakfast in past years with lackluster sales results.

Adjusted EBITDA will be flat to down 2 per cent, below the 2.5 to 4.5 per cent growth it had been targeting.

So far, Wendy's entrance into the breakfast wars is making some investors feel nauseous: The company's stock fell 9% on Tuesday - on pace for its worst day in almost six years. At present, the breakfast menu is available in more than 300 restaurants nationwide. A spokesperson told CNN Business that Wendy's plans to offer more than that, including seasoned potatoes and croissant sandwiches. And McDonald's also reported strong sales earlier this year, which were boosted by the donut sticks.
