KFC chicken crisis looks set to continue

Colonel still missing vital ingredient in York Chicken Shortage: Fast-food Chain KFC Forced To Close Many Stores In UK

It added: "The colonel is working on it".

KFC said it had set up a web page to guide fried chicken fans to their nearest open outlet.

Many KFCs in the United Kingdom are still closed due to a shortage of chicken, after the chain's newly appointed distributor, DHL, failed to supply restaurants with the right quantities.

KFC, which previously said it picked DHL for its expertise in other industries, this week blamed the chicken shortage on "teething problems" with the new arrangement.

KFC has set up a webpage for United Kingdom customers to find out the latest updates regarding their nearest outlets. In a tweet, on Monday, KFC gave an update.

PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects, Dawn Carr, said: "All our wonderful winners deliver plant-based chicken with huge flavour and zero cruelty". Part of the problem they have faced is due to the change in the supply systems, switching from processing orders from six warehouses to just one distribution centre. However, having hundreds of restaurants closed could cost them millions in lost sales and low capacity utilisation.

"In a bid to increase profits, KFC awarded the contract to DHL....causing 255 redundancies and the closure of a Bidvest depot..." About 80% of the brand's United Kingdom eateries are franchised.

Rugby is some 370 miles from Elgin and 250 miles from Penzance.

About 450 of KFC's 900 outlets remained closed, with a KFC spokesperson saying the disruptions would continue.

It's unclear when the delivery problems will be rectified, KFC told the BBC.

"Franchisees will be seeking their own independent advice, but we're encouraging them to adopt this policy too", KFC said.

"Bidvest are specialists - a food distribution firm with years of experience".

People across the United Kingdom tweeted of their outrage over the news.

Some of them called the chicken shortage a "crisis" or "apocalypse". The BBC also described the news as a "chicken chaos".
