McDonald’s Rolling Out Chicken Wings Next Month
Just in time for football season… McDonald’s plans to offer chicken wings at U.S. restaurants starting Sept. 9. The trial run for wings will extend through November, according to a report published Friday.
BurgerBusiness said “Mighty Wings,” which previously have been market tested in select cities, will now roll out nationally at $2.99 for three wings. McDonald’s is also reportedly going to sell five and 10-piece orders.
McDonald’s has recently rolled out other temporary items like Fish McBites, in the hope of spicing up the menu and attracting customers. Yahoo Finance reports same-store sales have been sluggish for months. Some observers think the wings could also help the chain attract a casual dinner crowd, instead of the usual grab-and-dash lunch rush.
