"After the overwhelming success of our local favorite, McDonald's Gilroy Garlic Fries, we wanted to test our own take on the beloved crab sandwich," said Nick Vergis, McDonald's Co-op President, San Francisco Bay Area. "We're excited for our customers to try it and share their feedback."
"McDonald's is committed to creating quality food with quality ingredients," Chef Michael Haracz, Manager of Culinary Innovation at McDonald's USA. "We're very proud of the work done by local franchisees to innovate and create a new regional menu item that is so iconic in the Bay Area."
Pending positive customer feedback, the Crab Sandwich will be available at nearly 250 McDonald's restaurants across the San Francisco Bay Area later this year.
