McDonald’s locations in Orlando are testing out a breakfast catering service through which customers can order bundles of meals.

Good news for your office breakfast order: McDonald’s is testing breakfast catering in Orlando. The catering menu includes all of McDonald’s breakfast options in packages to serve six, 12, or 18 people.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the catering service is now available at all 195 central Florida McDonald’s restaurants but only during breakfast service hours — even though McDonald’s serves breakfast all day. Orders can be placed through UberEats, the McDelivery app, or by calling in and picking up from a McDonald’s restaurant.

Customers can pick and choose whatever menu items they would like included with their catering order à la carte, or they can select from several meal bundles with names like “Sunrise Surprise” (three egg McMuffins; three sausage, egg, and cheese McGriddles; three Fruit n’ Yogurt parfaits; three hash browns; and a coffee tote or a gallon of O.J.) or the “Breakfast Boss” (a hearty combination of six bacon, egg, and cheese McGriddles; six sausage burritos; three hotcakes; six hash browns; three fruit and maple oatmeals; six apple slice packets; one McCafé coffee tote; and a gallon of O.J.).

Nation’s Restaurant News reports that prices are not readily available for bundles on the McDonald’s website. “Prices are determined at the individual restaurant level and may vary,” a spokesperson for the brand told them. According to the outlet, all central Florida locations have instituted a dedicated phone line for breakfast catering orders.

A McDonald’s spokesperson told The Daily Meal via email that the central Florida catering program is only a test. McDonald’s does not currently plan on expanding the service beyond the currently included restaurants. Don’t work in Orlando but still want to order breakfast for you and your team?

McDonald's is now serving muffin tops for breakfast — and they're basically lower-calorie cake

McDonald's has always been known for their delicious breakfast options — the Egg McMuffin is a classic. A few years ago, the fast food company upped their game by making the decision to serve breakfast all day long, a choice that thrilled fans everywhere. And now they're making things even more exciting with a slew of new menu items, including one that can't be ignored: muffin tops.

The "muffin top" originated from an episode of "Seinfeld."

Muffin tops are exactly what they sound like — the isolated top of a muffin. The idea of muffin tops was first presented by Julia Louis-Dreyfus's character Elaine on "Seinfeld." In one episode from 1997, Elaine gushes about the tops of muffins, which she says are the only good part. She talks about how she doesn't know what to do with the remainder of the muffin, sand tries donating them to soup kitchens, who reject them because they're "just stumps." Eventually, Elaine opens a shop called "Top of the Muffin To You," where they sold only muffin tops.

Now it seems that McDonald's is also taking the idea for a spin. Bloomberg has reported that McDonald's tested selling 160-calorie blueberry muffin toppers (as they call them) at shops in the Baltimore area. Fox News reports that there other new menu items being tested, like Cold Brew Frozen Drinks.

Muffin tops aren't the only new breakfast items.

In a statement , a representative for McDonald's said, "We continue to look at ways to offer new breakfast menu items and experiences at the compelling value of McDonald's. This includes our commitment to coffee, and continuing to give customers more tastes and choices from McCafé."

The representative also promised a few exciting menu additions, including muffin toppers: "Customers can also expect to see an elevated McCafé experience in our modernized US restaurants — delicious menu items like muffin toppers, coffee cakes, apple pies with lattice crusts that are baked in-restaurant, and cookies are part of our Experience of the Future deployment."

McDonald's is testing out breakfast catering at select locations.

And that's not all: the chain is testing out breakfast catering at 195 Orlando based restaurants in Florida. The menu, which launched at participating McDonald's on May 22, allows customers to “Craft Your Own Breakfast.” You can choose from a variety of Meal Bundles that include the Egg McMuffin, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Hash Browns, and Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfaits. Customers can also add on group-size beverages that include freshly brewed McCafé Coffee, orange juice, Southern Style Sweet Tea, and Unsweetened Iced Tea. Breakfast Catering can be ordered through McDelivery on the Uber Eats App or UberEats.com where available.

In a statement on Business Wire , a representative said, "Breakfast Catering was created with planners, hosts, and groups in mind as the perfect addition to any office meeting or social gathering."

For now, we can't say when muffin toppers or any of the other new menu items, including Breakfast Catering, will land at a store near you. It seems that McDonald's is still in the testing stages for these options, and will likely begin rolling them out to other stores only if they see some success.

Chances are good that you'll get to taste the muffin toppers, though, as this new focus on breakfast seems to be here to stay. At an investor conference, Chief Financial Officer Kevin Ozan said , "We took our eye off the ball on breakfast. With everything else going on, we just lost a little focus on that breakfast day part." He added, "There's a new, renewed, intense focus on breakfast."

We definitely won't complain about that, especially when it involved muffin tops.

And now they're making things even more exciting with a slew of new menu items, including one that can't be ignored: muffin tops.

The "muffin top" originated from an episode of "Seinfeld."

Muffin tops are exactly what they sound like — the isolated top of a muffin. The idea of muffin tops was first presented by Julia Louis-Dreyfus's character Elaine on "Seinfeld." In one episode from 1997, Elaine gushes about the tops of muffins, which she says are the only good part. She talks about how she doesn't know what to do with the remainder of the muffin, sand tries donating them to soup kitchens, who reject them because they're "just stumps." Eventually, Elaine opens a shop called "Top of the Muffin To You," where they sold only muffin tops.

Now it seems that McDonald's is also taking the idea for a spin. Bloomberg has reported that McDonald's tested selling 160-calorie blueberry muffin toppers (as they call them) at shops in the Baltimore area. Fox News reports that there other new menu items being tested, like Cold Brew Frozen Drinks.

Muffin tops aren't the only new breakfast items.

Where they putting all the stumps? #seinfeld #muffintoppers #topofthemuffintoyou.

In a statement , a representative for McDonald's said, "We continue to look at ways to offer new breakfast menu items and experiences at the compelling value of McDonald's. This includes our commitment to coffee, and continuing to give customers more tastes and choices from McCafé."

The representative also promised a few exciting menu additions, including muffin toppers: "Customers can also expect to see an elevated McCafé experience in our modernized US restaurants — delicious menu items like muffin toppers, coffee cakes, apple pies with lattice crusts that are baked in-restaurant, and cookies are part of our Experience of the Future deployment."

McDonald's is testing out breakfast catering at select locations.

And that's not all: the chain is testing out breakfast catering at 195 Orlando based restaurants in Florida. The menu, which launched at participating McDonald's on May 22, allows customers to “Craft Your Own Breakfast.” You can choose from a variety of Meal Bundles that include the Egg McMuffin, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Hash Browns, and Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfaits. Customers can also add on group-size beverages that include freshly brewed McCafé Coffee, orange juice, Southern Style Sweet Tea, and Unsweetened Iced Tea. Breakfast Catering can be ordered through McDelivery on the Uber Eats App or UberEats.com where available.

In a statement on Business Wire , a representative said, "Breakfast Catering was created with planners, hosts, and groups in mind as the perfect addition to any office meeting or social gathering."

For now, we can't say when muffin toppers or any of the other new menu items, including Breakfast Catering, will land at a store near you. It seems that McDonald's is still in the testing stages for these options, and will likely begin rolling them out to other stores only if they see some success.

Chances are good that you'll get to taste the muffin toppers, though, as this new focus on breakfast seems to be here to stay. At an investor conference, Chief Financial Officer Kevin Ozan said , "We took our eye off the ball on breakfast. With everything else going on, we just lost a little focus on that breakfast day part." He added, "There's a new, renewed, intense focus on breakfast."

We definitely won't complain about that, especially when it involved muffin tops.

McDonald's is now serving muffin tops for breakfast — and they're basically lower-calorie cake
