KFC UK chicken shortage expected to last remainder of week
A chicken supply issue that has seen two thirds of UK KFC stores unable to open for business is expected to continue for the remainder of the week.
Earlier this week, a number of Kentucky Fried Chicken stores were forced to close their doors or only offer a limited menu when chicken could not be delivered.
The chicken shortage is attributed to “teething problems” with KFC UK’s new delivery partnership with logistics provider DHL.
As of a few hours ago, over half of KFC’s UK stores were open again, but it is understood some stores will be impacted for the remainder of the week.
KFC has published an public apology for the closures on its website and says its restaurant teams are working hard to get all stores open again.
“We know that this might have inconvenienced some of you over the last few days, and disappointed you when you wanted your fried chicken fix – we’re really sorry about that,” KFC said.
“Shout out to our restaurant teams who are working flat out to get us back up and running again.”
There are 900 KFC restaurants in the UK and KFC has a list of open stores on its website.
