However, there are two major qualifications for the deal. First, customers can only get their free breakfast flatbread with the purchase of a sub sandwich. Second, the sub sandwich-breakfast sandwich combo has to be ordered before 9 a.m.

McDonald's managed to significantly grow sales by expanding breakfast into an all-day affair, while the morning meal now makes up 6% of Taco Bell's business just two years after the Mexican chain launched its breakfast menu.
