NEW YORK - McDonald's is adding three new Quarter Pounders to its core menu as the fast-food chain looks to offer cheaper premium burgers and capitalize on one of its most popular brands.
The company, based in Oak Brook, Ill., says the new burgers will replace its meatier Angus Third Pounders, which were among the most expensive items on its menu at around $4 to $5. McDonald's Corp. says the new Quarter Pounders will roll out nationally in mid-June.
All Quarter Pounders, including the original, will use a new bun that has eight grams of whole grains.
The swap for burgers with less meat comes as restaurant chains face rising beef prices.
