McDonald's Corp. said Monday that a key sales figure rebounded in November, as customers snapped up the world's biggest hamburger chain's breakfast offerings and limited-time Cheddar Bacon Onion sandwiches.

The increase puts behind a decline in October, the first drop in McDonald's key monthly sales gauge in nearly a decade.

The company said that its global sales at restaurants open at least 13 months rose 2.4 percent for the month ended Nov. 30. The figure rose 2.5 percent in the United States, boosted by popularity of breakfast options, its value menu and limited-time Cheddar Bacon Onion sandwiches. It rose 1.4 percent in Europe, where it gets 40 percent of its business, as strength in the United Kingdom, Russia and other markets was offset by weakness in Germany. Systemwide sales, which includes sales at all restaurants, rose 3.2 percent.
