All-day McGriddle tested

Basking in the fanfare over its all-day breakfast menu, McDonald’s is pushing its operational limits by testing the addition of another morning favorite to the lineup: the McGriddle.

The world’s biggest burger chain plans to start offering an expanded all-day breakfast menu that includes McGriddle sandwiches in 72 restaurants in Tulsa, Okla., starting Feb. 1. The test comes after customers complained about the absence of the sandwich when McDonald’s launched a limited all-day breakfast menu in October.

McDonald’s expects the test to last for two to three months before deciding how to proceed.

McDonald’s is riding high from its biggest quarterly U.S. sales jump in nearly four years.

The Oak Brook, Ill., company said this week that sales rose 5.7 percent in the last three months of year, boosted by all-day breakfast menu and unseasonably warm weather.

SMALL BUSINESS

Ad wins Super Bowl contest

A coffee with an edgy name and made by a small business is getting a commercial in Super Bowl 50.

Death Wish Coffee Co. won a competition held by software maker Intuit for a 30-second spot during the third quarter of the big game on Feb. 7. The Round Lake, N.Y, company beat more than 15,000 other small businesses in voting by the public and Intuit employees.

Death Wish was founded in 2012 by Mike Brown, who owns a coffee house in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and wanted to find a strong, highly-caffeinated brew. Packaged in a black bag with a skull and bones label, the coffee, a blend that Brown created, is sold in a handful of stores and online. Death Wish currently sells about 1,000 pounds a day, a number expected to increase considerably after the Super Bowl spot runs.

Death Wish is the second company that Intuit has bought an ad for. In 2014, it paid for a spot for GoldieBlox, a toy for girls, after holding a similar competition.
