McDonald’s is about to bring back its breakfast menu and reopen 500 other restaurants as it continues to break out of the lockout.
The fast food chain hopes to try to bring back its breakfast menu in the coming weeks.
McDonald’s UK and Ireland CEO Paul Pomroy said McDonald’s was working hard to bring back its full menu, but only when it was safe.
He plans to test the return of breakfast in a few weeks.
This follows the announcement of the reopening of 500 other restaurants next week, after three days of reopening this week by McDonald’s.

Side dishes & Desserts:
McFlurry (Oreo, Maltesers, Smarties)
No milkshakes or smoothies
No chicken wraps
There are no promotional items like the Big Tasty line
No sachets of carrot sticks, apple pies or muffins
With the additional 500 openings, restaurant chains will now have more than 1,000 stores open to customers.
However, all stores continue to use only drive-through or delivery services, as customers are still not allowed inside restaurants.
Paul Pomroy said: “Next week, we will reactivate McDelivery in over 500 restaurants, with the help of our delivery partners Uber Eats and Just Eat.
“As with our Drive Thru operations, this could take a little longer and we expect demand to be high again and both of these factors could affect service times.
“But I know that you will continue to show the patience that we have seen all week and I thank you again for your understanding. “
It is not yet known which 500 stores will open soon.
McDonald’s has had a limited menu since it started reopening, but now it has announced that its breakfast menu is back.
The fast food chain began reopening to the public on June 2, when 168 restaurants were opened offering driving services and 22 additional stores offered deliveries.
The next day, 497 other restaurants with driving services opened, 42 of which also offer delivery.
On June 4, McDonald’s reopened 261 other restaurants, bringing the total number of stores to just under 1,000.
Customers using drive-thru can pre-order their meals on the McDonald’s app but are asked to limit their spending to £ 25
Customers have been sitting in tailgates that stretch for miles all week to get hold of Happy Meals and Big Macs as the chain gradually reopens restaurants with new social distancing measures and a spending cap of 25 £ in place.
But furious spectators from Wolverhampton slammed the drivers who refused to leave for an ambulance with flashing blue lights.
Tia-anne Sterling shared footage of the emergency vehicle fighting to get through traffic, writing, “I am absolutely dismayed at how selfish people are. Nobody lets these ambulances pass. I feel sick.
“Imagine if it were an ambulance for a loved one or someone close to you! What the world came to.
A spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We can confirm that an ambulance on the way to a patient was slightly delayed on Penn Road in Wolverhampton just after 3pm yesterday. However, the crew still arrived at the scene within 15 minutes of the call. The call was classified as C3, which carries a target of 120 minutes, which therefore had no effect on patient care.
