African-American diners who have long relied on African-inspired food may soon find themselves having to wait longer for their meals.
The new menu from Burger King USA will be available on the company’s first national breakfast menu in more than a year.
Burger King has already rolled out the menu in the United States, and it is expected to follow suit.
However, the company will not be available nationwide.
The menu features breakfast sandwiches, omelets, pancakes and other breakfast items.
The company said it was adding “African American” as a flavor category.
“We know that some of our customers may be searching for African-based options to satisfy their African American tastes, so we’ve taken this step to bring our menu to them,” Burger King said in a statement.
“Our goal is to make our menu accessible to a wider audience, including people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds.”
The menu is set to be available through November, but it may not be immediately available to order.
Burger King’s first breakfast menu has been available in the U.S. since December 2017, and the menu is expected be available nationally for at least another year.
The new African-style menu will be offered at all of Burger King locations in the first quarter of 2018.
