Wendy's is set to join the ranks of McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Hardee's and other fast food outlets that serve breakfast.

Wendy's announced on Monday that it will make breakfast available system wide in 2020 after only running at 300 of its U.S. locations currently. Adding breakfast at restaurants will mean Wendy's will add 20,000 employees.

Wendy's said that its breakfast menu will include a breakfast Baconator, Frosty-ccino, and honey butter chicken biscuit.

"Launching breakfast in our U.S. restaurants nationwide provides incredible growth opportunities," said Todd Penegor, President and CEO of The Wendy's Company. "We are well-positioned to pursue it. We believe we have the right team and structure in place, and we put Wendy's fan favorites on our breakfast menu to set us apart from the competition."
