In UK, they’re probably going to call this “The Great Chicken Crisis” of 2018. Probably not, but if this was happening in the USA, we’d probably be in a total panic right about now. I know I would. ABC News (@ABCNews) reports, Kentucky Fried Chicken has closed hundreds of locations in the UK and Ireland on Monday night after its shops ran out of chicken following delivery problems.
KFC switched its delivery contract to German shipping company DHL, which had promised to “set a new standard” after winning the huge contract with the chicken giant. On Monday, 575 KFC restaurants were closed. Stores had initially run out of chicken over the weekend.
“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 apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.” a DHL spokesperson said.
