Fast food giant Wendy’s is getting ready to invite you to breakfast — and it plans to hire more than 20,000 new employees to make it possible.

The company announced plans to offer breakfast nationwide next year. Currently breakfast items are available in more than 300 of its restaurants.

The new menu will feature signature items from Applewood smoked bacon to the Frosty®, and creatively delivers them to fans for breakfast. Signature items include the Breakfast Baconator®, Frosty-ccino and Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit.
