The Lessons of All-Day Breakfast

McDonald’s SVP Kristy Cunningham, who helped lead the company’s wildly successful all-day breakfast initiative, talks about what the global icon learned from the experience—and what it taught her about herself


When Kristy Cunningham (MBA 1998) arrived at McDonald’s in 2014 as vice president of strategy and insights, she asked her team about the most common requests they were hearing from US consumers. The response was unanimous: All-day breakfast. In the end, all-day breakfast rolled out nationwide in October 2015, less than a year after Cunningham arrived. In this episode of Skydeck, Cunningham talks with Bulletin editor Dan Morrell about how she managed rapid organizational change at such a massive scale.
