It's just KF now

FRIED chicken fans could face up to a month before KFC returns to normal business in the UK.

A source close to the action — or lack of it — told the Sun Online that suppliers are being told to prepare for disruption for up to a month.

The fast-food chain was forced to close around 700 of its 870 UK stores after a catastrophic failure at KFC’s new delivery firm DHL left them without chicken.

“We’ve been asked to prepare to run shop drops and we’re hearing that it could be for up to a month,” the source said.

“KFC are short of everything, not just chicken. It’s the chips, the sides, the lot.

“We saw problems coming when they dropped Bidvest for DHL because that meant they were going from three warehouses to one.

“The communications were so vague and they didn’t seem to know what they were doing.

“And on the first day, we didn’t receive orders until almost five hours after we were supposed to. That caused delays straight away.”

It’s believed that suppliers are now being told to drop goods directly to KFC branches, bypassing DHL completely.

Problems have been since business began when KFC’s new delivery firm DHL took over from Bidvest on Wednesday last week.
“I’ve been in the business for 40 years and I have never seen anything like it before. Nobody knew what they were doing at all. It was comical.”

Since 2pm today, KFC have said that at least 430 restaurants are now open — leaving 440 still closed — but many of them are offering limited menus or have cut their hours.

A KFC spokesperson said: “We anticipate the number of closures will reduce today and over the coming days as our teams work flat out all hours to clear the backlog.

“Each day more deliveries are being made, however, we expect the disruption to some restaurants to continue over the remainder of the week, meaning some will be closed and others operating with a reduced menu or shortened hours.”

While some fried chicken fans have been left upset and frustrated about the stores closures, some KFC workers are worried that they might not be paid.

KFC said staff on short-term contacts working in restaurants owned by the chain would be paid the average hours worked per day over the past 12 weeks, while those on salaries would be paid as normal.
