With the introduction of the Egg McMuffin in 1972, when market research showed that a quick breakfast would be welcomed by consumers, the company was a pioneer in fast food. Five years later, McDonald`s added a full breakfast line to the menu, and until 1987, a quarter of all breakfasts eaten in the United States came from McDonald`s restaurants.
