KFC’s driving service reopens, causing “absolute scandal” with queues of “100 cars and more”


Hordes of chicken fanatics have descended on KFCs across Britain after the fast food chain has reopened dozens of its driving services.

A hungry customer reportedly spent almost £ 100 on food at his local Exeter branch.

Gigantic queues of traffic spanning “over 100 cars” have formed outside popular restaurants with locked-in Britons desperate for their southern fried solution.

Along with Burger King, KFC was one of the first fast food restaurants to start trading again last week, a month and a half after the closure.

The service lanes at the wheel of fifty-five restaurants are now operating again, with even more deliveries – although customers are still not allowed to sit inside.

Photos on social media show people with their orders – dozens of people have been queuing for more than an hour to get their food.

Graeme Long of Birmingham posted a video on his social media pages and said it was “the funniest thing I have seen locked out”, adding “I couldn’t believe it not my eyes. “

Paige Henley said: “KFC opens and all Exeter rushes in as if everyone has been starving for weeks. “

Another person in Exeter is said to have spent £ 90 on his takeout order, reports DevonLive.

David Harrison tweeted, “I just fed the van, walk past KFC to see more than 100 cars in the queue! It really must be licking your fingers. “

Tom Longley described the queues outside a KFC at Queens Road, Sheffield as “a mess since it reopened.”

“I saw a woman in the parking lot today yelling at a delivery driver for approaching her within 2 meters,” he said.

“She knows that social distancing is important but does not see that f ***** g KFC is not. “

It also appears that some were taking reopenings as a green light to flout the lock rules, including group meeting.

Cliff Morgan said, “Caused massive queues in Doncaster and people gathered in the park across the street to eat – no respect for NHS workers, close a lot now!” “

This comes as the government plans to let small groups of family and friends mix, but it is unlikely to come into play for weeks.

A spokesman for the chain said the branches have been “reopened gradually”, with 100 restaurants in the UK due to be delivered on Monday.

They added, “We do this in a responsible and prudent manner, with rigorous processes and hygienic measures in place. All of our restaurants will continue to serve a limited menu to help small kitchen teams maintain social distance. ”

Meanwhile, Paula MacKenzie, Managing Director of KFC UK & Ireland, said she was “really proud” of the way the company had worked with franchise partners to “provide wider access to hot food for those who needed it most. “

“Whether it’s key workers after a long shift or those working from home who need a quick and affordable dinner for the family. “

MacKenzie added that she “greatly appreciates” KFC staff in “a difficult time for everyone, but we are so happy to play our part in helping to feed the nation.”
