You know the saying — breakfast is the most important meal of the day. From eggs and bacon to pancakes and parfaits, about three in five Americans say breakfast is their favorite meal, according to results from a 2021 Harris Poll. People love breakfast foods so much that they often enjoy them at other times of day, with about one in five Americans indulging in breakfast fare as a sweet treat.

During Better Breakfast Month in September, grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries and eateries of all sorts can use promotional products to introduce new breakfast items or highlight special offers.

We’re serving some promotional ideas for the occasion in this issue of Promotional Consultant Today.
