NEW YORK — Taco Bell wants to be what's for breakfast.
Taco Bell, which earlier this year cut kid's meals from its menus, is expanding a test of the waffle taco — scrambled eggs and sausage wrapped in a waffle served with a side of syrup. The expansion comes as Taco Bell prepares to take its breakfast menu national next year.
The fast-food chain says the waffle taco was the top seller at the five restaurants where they were tested earlier this year. Now the company wants to see how it would fare on a bigger scale. The waffle tacos and a full breakfast menu will be expanded to about 100 restaurants in Fresno, Calif.; Omaha, Neb.; and Chattanooga, Tenn., starting Thursday.
Taco Bell already offers breakfast at about 850 locations in 10 Western states, and has been tinkering with new items such as the waffle taco before rolling it out to its 6,000 U.S. locations.
