Wendy's Plans to Launch Breakfast Nationwide, Trims 2019 View

Wendy's headquarters in Dublin Ohio

You usually think of McDonald's, Tim Hortons and Burger King, when considering breakfast fast food stops, but now Wendy's has officially entered the game.

Now available at more than 300 participating locations, Wendy's breakfast menu takes fan-favorite items like the Baconator and the Frosty and serves them up with a breakfast twist.

The company said Monday that its taking breakfast nationwide next year with a new menu inspired by its afternoon menu and, obviously, includes a Frosty made for breakfast. The company expects to spend about $20 million to serve breakfast throughout the country.

The Frosty-ccino: Cold-brew coffee mixed with either chocolate or vanilla Frosty cream.

In the past, the chain has attempted several times to sell breakfast, dating back to the 1980s.

The Honey Butter Chicken Sandwich: Fried chicken and whipped honey butter on a biscuit. And, of course, all the chains face competition from people opting to eat breakfast at home or grabbing quick meals from numerous other restaurants, including Starbucks, Dunkin' and Chick-fil-A.

"Launching breakfast in our US restaurants nationwide provides incredible growth opportunities", Wendy's President and CEO Todd Penegor said in a statement, adding that having Wendy's "fan favorites" on the breakfast menu will set it apart from the competition.

Breakfast items are available at about 300 locations throughout the United States now, according to the release. Shares dipped about 3% after the market closed Monday on the news.

Menu innovations have helped boost Wendy's sales. A spokesperson told CNN Business that Wendy's plans to offer more than that, including seasoned potatoes and croissant sandwiches.
