McDonald's introduced the all-day breakfast menu in 2015, but stopped at the end of March due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Unfortunately, there's a good chance it will never be brought back.

McDonald's decided to do away with all-day breakfast to "simplify operations in our kitchens, which we say provided better speed of service and order accuracy," according to a spokesperson from the chain.  When asked whether or not all-day breakfast would make a return, the spokesperson said, "As McDonald’s and franchisees evaluate if and how we bring All Day Breakfast back to our menus, we want to ensure these improvements will remain consistent for our customers. Any final decision will be made in partnership with our franchisees, based on consumer demand, and designed to drive the business while minimizing operational disruptions."

Of course, this has some customers distraught.

However, a number of franchisees and employees are happy with the removal of all-day breakfast.

One franchise operator told Business Insider, 'I absolutely do not think we should bring it back.  It makes us faster, and gives the grill less to worry about."  Blake Casper, chairman of the National Owners Association at McDonald's independent franchise association, echoed those sentiments as well saying, "The limited menu and ease of operations are allowing our teams to focus and provide blazing fast service."

McDonald's began serving all-day breakfast in 2015.  Because of the ongoing pandemic, the chain has also cut from its menu salads, grilled chicken sandwiches, and chicken tenders in order to streamline operations.
