(Bloomberg) -- The Quarter Pounder is not enough. McDonald’s Corp. will test a bigger burger this year to meet diners’ appetite for more filling patties.

“Our team of chefs from around the world have created a larger, satiating burger,” Chief Financial Officer Ian Borden said Tuesday on a call with analysts. McDonald’s will roll it out to a few markets around the world to make sure it has global appeal, he said.

The company unveiled an expansive growth plan in December that includes a focus on the chain’s core menu, including beef. It has struggled with sluggish demand lately, with executives saying the chain will double down on affordability in the US after comparable-sales growth trailed expectations in the most recent quarter.
