LONDON- Some outlets of KFC stores will be closing as the UK experiences “operational issues” with new German delivery supplier DHL, that did not deliever them poultry supplies.
But leave it to KFC to solve its own created problem, “Each day more deliveries are being made,” said a spokesperson for KFC.
“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.”
The crisis is KFC begun after they switched its delivery contract to DHL, leading to some 700 of its British stores to close.
“We’ve brought a new delivery partner on board, but they’ve had a couple of teething problems – getting fresh chicken out to 900 restaurants across the country is pretty complex,” KFC said.
“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,”
“Please do not contact us about the KFCcrisis – it is not a police matter if your favourite eatery is not serving the menu that you desire.”
“The reasons for this unforeseen interruption of this complex service are being worked on,” he added, although did not give the exact reason for the problem.
“We are committed to step-by-step improvements to allow KFC to reopen its stores over the coming days.”
