Burger King offers burgers for breakfast

burgerkingBurger King is adding hamburgers to its breakfast menu.

A Burger King spokeswoman told CNNMoney on Thursday that 5,000 of its restaurants will participate in its new program, called Burgers at Breakfast.

The new menu will include a variety of Whopper sandwiches, cheeseburgers and chicken sandwiches as well as French fries and apple pie.

Burger King wouldn’t say when it will begin offering burgers for breakfast.

This is the latest salvo is the fast food breakfast wars. Burger King competitor McDonald’s does not have hamburgers on its breakfast menu, but the company has considered expanding its breakfast menu hours to try and correct a slump in sales. McDonald’s also wooed customers during breakfast hours last month with free coffee for two weeks.

Taco Bell starting serving breakfast in March and introduced the Waffle Taco, a breakfast sandwich wrapped inside a waffle with syrup.

Burger King is also testing a Chicken and Waffle Sandwich.

Meanwhile, fast food workers are preparing to strike in 150 cities.

    Remember when they used to make the Whoppers fresh off the grill (machine) they used to have one of the best tasting fast food burger; then they decided to grill the burger and store them in a steamer, which took away the fresh char burger taste. I gave up on Burger King a long time ago.
