Quick-service operators are launching seasonal menu items earlier this fall in an effort to beat their competition to the punch. From pumpkin doughnuts to caramel apple frozen yogurt, fall-flavored menu items are popping up across the industry even before the season has officially begun.
“We usually launch [fall products] in October. But this year, for the first time, we are bringing them out in September,” says Lafeea Watson, spokeswoman for Krispy Kreme. “That’s what the industry seems to be doing.”
To help kick off September in a big way, Dunkin’ Donuts is toasting big appetites with the launch of the new Angus Steak Big N’ Toasted breakfast sandwich.
For guests seeking a satisfying breakfast on the go that is larger and heartier than the typical breakfast sandwich, the Angus Steak Big N’ Toasted sandwich features two eggs, Angus steak, and a slice of American cheese, packed between two thick slices of Texas Toast.
The Angus Steak Big N’ Toasted sandwich is available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide for a limited time.
