What’s Happened at KFC?

BBC News have reported that as of Tuesday morning, over 640 KFC chicken shops have been forced to close due to, unbelievably, a lack of chicken.

The fast food giant has recently switched delivery company, swapping food distribution experts Bidvest for worldwide delivery company DHL. This swap has resulted in KFC stores not receiving their chicken deliveries.

Some argue that a delivery of chicken to a fast food chain that specialises in chicken is somewhat important for business.

KFC have blamed the lack of chicken deliveries on ‘a couple of teething problems’ after making the delivery company swap.

The use of a new computer system to order the chicken has also been put forward as a reason.

When Will KFC Stores Reopen?

They’re not too sure! It’s a case of ‘as and when’ for deliveries being made to stores up and down the country.

BBC News reports that KFC bosses have stated it’s ‘too early to tell’ how long the problem will persist, and when the chicken delivery calamity will be resolved.
