McDonald's is rolling out cheesy bacon fries in 2019.
The fast-food chain is taking the bacon-topped dish national in early 2019, a McDonald's employee with knowledge of the situation told Business Insider. According to photos viewed by Business Insider, at least some stores have started adding the "loaded bacon fry station" to their point of sales systems.
Locations in Hawaii and Northern California began selling the cheesy bacon fries in November, Nation's Restaurant News reported. In a mid-November note, Mark Kalinowski of Kalinowski Equity Research said that the test markets' locations suggested McDonald's was taking the test seriously and that the odds were growing that the chain would roll out the menu item nationally in 2019.
"I'm afraid I'll have to provide a cheesy no comment," a McDonald's representative told Business Insider in an email on Friday. "At this moment, our kitchens are bacon-ing something together. But we're not yet ready to share the gouda news."
The McDonald's worker said he is concerned about the possibility of confusion behind the scenes as workers learn to prepare the new dish, which he said has a new type of bacon.
Customers have already posted photos and early reviews of the fries from the test markets.
