Chicken prices are crazy right now. The restaurant that I bartend at is $10.99 for a 5-piece right now iirc and that's definitely one of the items we're not really making a profit off of.
they've had to cull something like 80m chickens because of some bird flu that's going around :o it's why eggs are off the charts

Yeah, we were coming up with some "breakfast" options to roll in for the new menu, but we're going to wait until those egg prices drop, because we'd either lose money, or have a breakfast sandwich that isn't comparable to our current sandwich prices.

Thanks, Obama.

We have a bunch of plant-based options. Beyond burgers, falafel, plant-based cheese sauce for cheese fries, etc. so that wouldn't be a hard sell. We don't open until noon, so breakfast isn't necessarily a concern, but we were thinking of expanding our hours or at least offering it as a weekend brunch option until then.

I think we're just gonna say "fuck it" for now. We're busy enough with people waiting outside when we open the doors, no need to clog the grill with eggs.
