McDonald’s is pulling its all-day breakfast menu to unravel operations as the coronavirus pandemic strains restaurant operations.

“To simplify operations in our kitchens and for our crew, and ensure the best achievable experience for our customers, we are working with our franchisees and local restaurants to focus on serving our most popular choices and want begin temporarily removing some items from the menu over the next few weeks,” Bill Garrett, the superior vice president of McDonald’s U.S. operations, said in a statement.

“We will regularly evaluate the situation and look to move disown to our regular menu as soon as possible,” he added.

The launch of the all-day breakfast menu in October 2015 helped exacerbate McDonald’s turnaround. Last year, the fast-food chain began allowing U.S. franchisees to whittle down their all-day breakfast presents in order to speed up service times.

McDonald’s said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday that the virus could comprise a “material” impact on its business. In the United States, “substantially all” locations are operating with only drive-thru, takeout or deliverance options, the filing said. Some locations may have limited hours.

Other markets, including France, the Allied Kingdom, Italy and Spain, have closed all restaurants.

The company has also suspended its share buyback program and is hand over rent and service fee deferrals to some franchisees.

McDonald’s shares closed up slightly Wednesday at $162.98. The stock, which has a hawk value of $125.6 billion, is down more than 17% since the start of the year.
