KFC 'Doesn't Know' When It Will Reopen Over 700 Restaurants

Right, don't panic, but KFC has said it doesn't know when it will be reopen over 700 of its restaurants, after a 'hiccup' with its new 'delivery partner'. I said don't panic. Stop panicking.

The fast-food chain has been forced to close 720 of its branches right across the UK after switching suppliers and running in to some teething problems.

KFC has said it's 'too early to say how long it will take to clear the backlog' but that customers can rest assured that the team are working 'flat out all hours' to get back up and running following the problems.



A spokesperson told the Sun: "We've set up a page on our website - www.kfc.co.uk/crossed-the-road - so our fans can check where their nearest open restaurant is, and we're updating this as regularly as we can."

A statement was also released on the KFC website saying that the chain refuses to 'compromise on quality', so some branches are closed while others have a limited menu or are operating shorter hours until things are back to normal.

Frustrated fried chicken lovers have responded to the latest post and some of them are pretty angry:

Courier company DHL has since apologised for the KFC chicken shortage, saying in a statement: "Due to administrative issues a number of deliveries have been incomplete or delayed.

"We are doing our utmost to rectify the situation as soon as possible and apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused."
