In June, McDonald’s confirmed it was facing a nationwide shortage of Chicken Selects due to high demand. Now KFC and Nando are facing a similar problem.
The company added, âIn the meantime, please be patient with our amazing teams.
âThey are doing a brilliant job despite the disruption.
âWe look forward to seeing you soon for your next fix of fried chicken. Thank you for your understanding.”
At the time, KFC didn’t say what items were missing from its menu, but various restaurants across the UK have now revealed the details.
âThere are no boxes of rice, side rice, large drinks, hot drinks, Krushems, ice cream, cookies, salads or drinks that can be ordered for delivery.â
Meanwhile, KFC branches in Kent are running out of Zinger and Tower burgers, which are filled with chicken.
Customers using the company’s app could not order popular meals, with a message appearing on their screens telling them they were “not available.”
In Hull, a sign at a KFC restaurant detailed the same information as the Grimsby branch, warning customers of the “recent disruption.”
This is not the first time that KFC has run out of food.
In February 2018, the company had to close most of its restaurants in the UK and Ireland after “teething problems” with a new delivery contractor meant it was out of chicken.
Due to delivery issues, only around 80 KFC restaurants out of a total of 900 were open at the same time.
At the time, KFC released a statement explaining, âWe brought in a new delivery partner, but they had some start-up issues – bringing out fresh chicken to 900 restaurants across the country is pretty complex!
âWe won’t compromise on quality, so no deliveries have resulted in the closure of some of our restaurants and others with a limited menu or reduced hours.
“We know this may have annoyed some of you over the last few days and disappointed you when you wanted your fried chicken solution – we are so sorry.”
