McDonalds on the Isle of Wight will be serving breakfast for an extra 30 minutes every day from today (Wednesday) as part of a 6-week trial, which could lead to extended breakfast periods across the entire country.
For the first time ever McDonalds are offering those in the UK the chance to grab a McMuffin or perhaps a Breakfast Wrap right up until 11:00. Before now it has been a mad dash to get your order in ahead of the 10:30 cut off, with many missing out by seconds each morning.
Stores in Ryde and Newport are 2 of just 7 fast food restaurants in the country to be testing out the new breakfast hours – the other 5 are all in Portsmouth. It is the first time in the 25 year history of McDonalds breakfast that the hours have been changed.
The news will certainly be welcomed by local tradesmen on the job and those nursing a hangover on a Sunday morning.
If the trial – which runs until 24th July – is successful then the 05:00-11:00 breakfast hours look set to be rolled out nationwide.
Restaurants taking part in the trial include Newport and Ryde, alongside Commercial Road, Cosham, Ocean Retail Park, Fratton Park and North Harbour in Portsmouth.
