Whataburger Reinstates Regular Breakfast Hours
Just weeks after cutting short its breakfast hours due to a national egg shortage, Texas-based fast food franchise Whataburger has reinstated regular breakfast hours.
Whataburger confirmed that breakfast hours would return to 11 p.m. to 11 a.m. as of Friday, June 19. The schedule applies to all Whataburger locations and includes the entire breakfast menu -- even egg-based items.
Earlier this month, the San Antonio chain cut its breakfast hours short due to an egg shortage caused by an avian influenza outbreak: 5 - 9 a.m. on weekdays, and 5 - 11 a.m. on weekends.
Now, the chain says it's secured "additional egg supply" and is no longer experiencing an egg shortage.
Whataburger COO Dino Del Nano says that despite burgers being the company's foundation, its breakfast menu has become a popular staple.
"While Whataburger was originally made famous by our burgers, our customers really love our breakfast menu – including those menu items made with eggs. We know it's been a tough couple of weeks for our customers, but we're really grateful for their support while we worked to build up our egg supply," said Del Nano. "All of us at Whataburger are so happy to get back to normal and serve our full breakfast menu to customers during our usual breakfast hours from 11 p.m. to 11 a.m."
