Wendy’s and McDonald’s battle over breakfast; Walmart could become a 5G hub
Morning Business Outlook: Wendy’s launches its brand new breakfast menu with nine new sandwiches but McDonald’s is looking to one-up its rival by offering free Egg McMuffins.
McDonald’s notified its customers that it would be selling Egg McMuffins for 63 cents on Thursday, Nov. 18, in honor of the menu item’s original price.
But not everyone has been able to secure the app-exclusive deal, according to customer complaints and outage data from Downdetector.
