The Egg McMuffin has been around since the 1970s and has continued to grow in popularity for the last several decades.
By 1981, the McDonald’s breakfast menu accounted for 18 percent of their total sales, according to Time. Their breakfast was so popular, that in 2015 McDonald’s began offering breakfast all-day.
However, in 2020 McDonald’s moved breakfast back to just the morning hours amidst people’s change in eating habits during the pandemic.
It is not likely that McDonald’s all-day breakfast menu will return, even after life shifts to a ‘new normal’.
However, McDonald’s breakfast has been popular for years, and it makes up a significant portion of their profit, so it is safe to say that their breakfast menu is not going away any time soon. You just won’t be able to get it at all hours of the day.
