All you McRib fans will have to wait a little longer this year.
McDonald's is delaying the debut of the meaty treat this year to bump up its December sales numbers, according to a memo obtained by Advertising Age. Normally, McDonald's starts selling the sandwich in a short window from October to early November.
The company was originally scheduled to fire up the McRib marketing from Oct. 22 through Nov. 11, according to a memo to a national advertising fund for McDonald's operators, Ad Age reports.
The McRib is a big deal to some McDonald's fans. And the company hopes that by turning the McRib spotlight to December, it will be able to reproduce the stellar sales numbers it hit in December 2011.
