Restaurants focus on breakfast crows

  • Breakfast traffic at restaurants increased 3% last year to easily outpace lunch and dinner visits which both showed declines, according to NPD data.
  • Quick service restaurants accounted for close to 80% of all the breakfast visits by consumers.
  • McDonald's (MCD) and Starbucks (SBUX) strengthened their breakfast market share position during the year, but a host of companies including Taco Bell (YUM) and Chipotle (CMG) are testing new formats and breakfast items.

    They're like regular crows, but filled with scrambled eggs and bacon instead of beans and taco meat.

    I think it's a way for them to sneak the mighty wings into breakfast.
