Breakfast is served, and quick-service restaurant (QSR) customers are ready for mouth-watering options to start – or end – their day. With 40% of consumers ordering breakfast away from home (Mintel, 2023), QSRs have an opportunity to attract cost-conscious customers with enticing all-day breakfast offerings. Between tried-and-true favorites like savory bagels and trendy picks like pint-sized pancakes, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get creative with breakfast sauces your guests will adore.
Breakfast classics like bagels, biscuits, and burritos can’t get much better – until you add flavor-forward breakfast sauces, that is. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to create something new and exciting for your QSR guests. You just have to make it taste fantastic.
For cost-conscious customers, robust flavors are a way to justify the expense of away-from-home (AFH) dining. Meanwhile, 61% of consumers stress the importance of flavor when selecting their breakfast foods (Mintel 2023).

With that in mind, consider expanding your breakfast menu beyond the early hours.
