KFC to reopen 80 more stores in UK

KFC is reopening a further 80 of its fast-food restaurants in UK, bringing the total now up to 100

KFC is increasing plans to reopen its UK stores despite the current lockdown measure that are in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, saying today that they are planning to open a further 80 of its fast-food restaurants, taking the total to 100 by early next week.

The American-owned company said in a statement that it was taking the major step in this time of global crisis:

“responsibly and carefully, with stringent processes and hygiene measures put in place. All our restaurants will continue serving a limited menu to help the smaller kitchen teams maintain social distancing.”

“They’re open for delivery only and are serving a limited menu, operated by fewer team members with new procedures in place to help ensure we’re following social distancing guidelines.”

KFC has over 900 fast-food restaurants in the UK employing around 24,000 people throughout the nation. The stores will be open for delivery only, and food can be ordered through Just Eat, Deliveroo and Uber Eats.

The chain is joining many more fast-food companies throughout the UK, who are all looking to gradually come back into business amid the current national lockdown, of course however, not without controversy given the strict social distancing measures.

Pubs and restaurants in the UK are currently still allowed to prepare and sell food for collection or delivery to reduce any face-to-face contact during the lockdown, and many have been providing free meals to NHS staff and other essential workers.

Breaking News Today previously covered when KFC began reopening 11 stores on April the 15th, Where a spokesperson for the company mentioned spoke about how they were helping the NHS, saying:

“We’ve also donated thousands of meals from all our open restaurants to those on the frontline, including the NHS and key workers, in partnership with Deliveroo, and will continue to do so each week whilst the situation continues.”

KFC have said that opening restaurants in more locations would mean that it could continue to donate food to the NHS and other key workers, meaning this would enable them to donate around 10,000 meals a week in partnership with Deliveroo alone, in addition to the 13,000 that has already been donated.
