KFC Will Open 100 Restaurants For Delivery By Next Monday
KFC has gradually reopened 20 restaurants in the UK over the past couple of weeks, but now they are planning to open another 80 by next Monday (4 May).
The decision has been made in a bid to put the nation's favourite fried chicken back on the menu, but you won't be able to go in to collect as the fast food will only be available for delivery.
According to a press release from KFC, they will be doing this responsibly and carefully, with stringent processes and hygiene measures in place.
Every one of the soon-to-be 100 restaurants will continue serving a limited menu to help the smaller kitchen teams maintain social distancing.
Opening the extra restaurants will also mean they can continue donating food to the NHS and other key workers. They have estimated that 10,000 meals a week will continue to be delivered in partnership with Deliveroo - to add to the 13,000 meals already donated.

Paula MacKenzie, Managing Director for KFC UK & Ireland said: "I'm really proud of the way we, with our franchise partners, have been able to carefully get some of our restaurants back open for delivery over the last two weeks.
"This next stage allows us to continue to provide wider access to hot food for those who need it most, whether that's key workers after a long shift or those working from home who need a quick, affordable dinner for the family.
"I'm hugely appreciative of our team members who have returned to work - it's a challenging time for everyone, but we're so glad to play our part in helping to feed the nation."
You can order KFC from the reopened restaurants on Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats.
