Why McDonald's Won't Serve Breakfast After Breakfast Hours And Other Secrets of The Fast-Food Chain
It remains one of the greatest first world problems. All you want is to start your day with Sausage McMuffin and hash browns, but as usual, you rolled out of bed too late and it's now 10:34 a.m. You'll have to go to Jack in the Box. Nooooo! Why oh why can't McDonald's just serve breakfast after breakfast hours?
As for the question of why McDonald's won't serve breakfast after breakfast hours, the answer is pretty obvious (but still sad)--they put away the breakfast-making equipment and ingredients and taking it out again would require extra time. (But if you really wanted a hash brown and an employee was cool, he or she could make it for you.)
