Is it coming for you?
Just when you thought the current spate of fast-food breakfast menus were plentiful enough as it is, a Taco Bell all-day breakfast program is being tested at one Dallas-area location. News of the possible Taco Bell all-day breakfast menu sighting broke earlier this week via one enterprising eater at GrubGrade, who posted photos of signs that suggest that at least one location offers the Taco Bell breakfast menu's $1 items at all hours, rather than just the morning. Best of all, the window signs themselves look like they came from Taco Bell HQ as well, rather than coming from inside this specific location itself.
But before we all get too excited, corporate teams were quick to say that the Taco Bell all-day breakfast menu isn't coming any time soon. The company's corporate headquarters asserted via Motley Fool that an assortment of $1 menu items are available throughout the day—not just breakfast foods alone. However, given how many other restaurants have launched all-day breakfast menus, such as the McDonald's all-day breakfast menu and the Jack in the Box Brunchfast program, there's a good chance that a Taco Bell all-day breakfast menu would be successful, let alone buzzworthy.
Best of all, Taco Bell's breakfast menu is already popular—since it launched in 2014, it has not only gained headlines for offering breakfast burritos, waffle tacos, and other unique items, it has also helped boost the chain's profitability within a short amount of time after implementation. Plus, it's the first breakfast menu to launch underneath the broader umbrella of fast-food chains owned by its parent company, Yum! Brands. So, if a Taco Bell all-day breakfast menu were in the offing, it could mark the company's first foray into the popular breakfast for lunch/dinner space forged by McDonalds and other chains.
Even if it might be too early to say whether or not a Taco Bell all-day breakfast menu is coming to a location near you, there's every reason to believe it could be on its way one day soon. Buena suerte, mi amigos.
