McDonald’s Corp. announced that it plans to eliminate its apple walnut salad and chicken selects and is reviewing options for its 1/3-pound Angus burger line. The cuts are being made to make way for new products expected to arrive this spring and summer, reports the Chicago Tribune.
McEnaney Enterprises, a McDonald's franchisee, tweeted about and posted the menu decisions on the company's Facebook page Tuesday. The page is no longer available and the franchisee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Among the new products is the McWrap sandwich, with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, grilled or fried chicken and a choice of sauce. McDonald’s has also been testing chicken wings.
McDonald's posted its first monthly same store sales decline in more than nine years last October. CEO Don Thompson has said that the company has a robust pipeline of new products slated for 2013, including at least one premium burger.
