Wendy’s wants to make you breakfast.

For those that may not be aware, the fast-food chain currently only serves breakfast in approximately 300 of its 6000 locations.

But starting next year, Wendy’s will offer customers their first meal of the day across the United States, according to CNN.

With plans to roll out a new menu, the burger chain gave fans a glimpse of what to expect at the morning drive-thru in 2020.

The Breakfast Baconator will get your heart pumping with its grilled sausage, eggs, two layers of cheese, and Applewood smoked bacon - all topped with a dollop of hollandaise (swiss cheese) sauce.

If fried chicken is your breakfast of champions, then the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit will be your wake-up call. It’s a buttermilk biscuit with fried chicken smothered in whipped honey butter. Yes, please!

Finally, get your caffeine fix with a Frosty-ccino. It’s their legendary Frosty milkshake swirled with cold-brewed coffee and served over ice.

Other items expected include seasoned potatoes and a slew of croissant sandwiches.

"Launching breakfast in our U.S. restaurants nationwide provides incredible growth opportunities," the company said in a press release. “We believe we have the right team and structure in place, and we put Wendy's fan favorites on our breakfast menu to set us apart from the competition."

Wendy’s has tried to get into the breakfast market at least three times before, most recently in 2012 when they briefly launched steel-cut oatmeal and artisan breakfast sandwiches.

But this time, they are going in big and investing $20 million for the nationwide launch and have plans to hire 20,000 new employees.

Breakfast won’t be the first menu additions Wendy’s has made this year.

Previously, the chain had fans salivating by introducing the Bacon Jalapeno Chicken Sandwich, the Frosty Cookie Sundae, and the highly-anticipated return of Spicy Nuggets.

And depending on your taste, any of those could make a fine breakfast too!
