Now KFC Has Joined McDonald's In Banning Under 18s

Now KFC Has Joined McDonald's In Banning Under 18s

Like many teens, I spent my fair share of Friday nights hanging around McDonalds. Why? Because there was fuck all else to do and I had to eat about three cheeseburgers to sober me up before I could go home.

However, that may soon be a thing of the past because two Maccies and KFC restaurants have banned under 18s from their branches.

A McDonald's in Meir Park, Stoke-on-Trent, made the decision to ban unsupervised youngsters after they had to call police to sort out a fight between a gang of 24 teenagers.

A KFC in the same area has now taken on the same precautions in order to try and stop any unruly behaviour whilst people devour their fried chicken.

"The way some of these youngsters act can be scary for staff. People shouldn't have to experience that," KFC manager, Liam Dalgarno, said.

"Under-18s are not strictly banned from the premises, they can come in to order their meal but then they have to take it out. A minority had been causing trouble. Really they only came in for the Wi-Fi but we have reduced the distance of it so now it only reaches the doors," he added.

To be fair, if I'm mid-way through a Mighty Bucket for one, relentlessly stuffing chips into my mouth, the last thing I want to see is multiple delinquents scrapping.

Liam added: "We had problems on a daily basis and we work closely with our PCSOs and police officers. We have gradually started noticing a difference since this policy was introduced and these measures help the staff to feel safer at work."
