This week’s edition of Served kicks off with a fast-food news roundup — because you know you love it.

Subway is looking to tap into the McDonald’s breakfast juggernaut with a morning menu of its own. The deciding factor may be coffee.

Bruegger’s Bagels has announced a revamp of its stores — just like Ruby Tuesday, Burger King, Chili’s and numerous other chains before them.

Among the 12 finalists in the Dunkin’ Donuts Next Donut contest: “Cop Cake,” with chocolate icing and peanut-butter cups, and “Snack-o-Lantern,” a pumpkin cake donut with maple icing and cinnamon chips.

Three area Waffle Houses have closed, making me concerned ab out the future of breakfast.

Also, KFC’s Double Down — the sandwich with chicken instead of bread — just may be a harbinger of innovation in the fast-food industry, according to a recent post on the Fortune magazine website.
