Nottingham city centre KFC starts selling chicken again after delivery

Company officials at KFC blamed the fiasco on delivery problems.

'We are working with KFC and our partners to rectify the situation as a priority and apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused'.

A spokesman for the fast food chain has confirmed that its restaurants at the Docks, on Fishergate and at Deepdale are all opening today with the KFC at Lostock Hall expected to open later on this evening.

According to Buzzfeed News, some KFC workers took matters into their own hands and procured chicken from other sources.

However, the GMB union claimed it had warned KFC that switching from previous courier Bidvest to DHL was a mistake. It said on Twitter: "If you have been affected by the recent chicken drought and it wasn't your fault, please visit your nearest Miss Millie's store to satisfy your cravings".

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

The national officer believes if KFC could go back to Bidvest "you could have a good operation up and running within a couple of weeks" as "DHL will not be able to provide the service they quoted for".

"It's an absolute cock up".

He also claimed his sources believe KFC management knew "three weeks ago" there would be a huge problem with DHL and were anxious about "the set-up and the systems after testing".

And now, cops in United Kingdom have warned chicken lovers to stop phoning them over the KFC crisis.

"At the time, DHL said in a statement the new partnership would "'re-write the rule book" and set a new benchmark for delivering fresh products to KFC in a sustainable way. A case of cost cutting gone to too far.

Sources have also revealed that it could take up to a month for KFC to return to normal. "Whilst this is unlikely to have a big knock on effect to the surrounding economy, it will most certainly put more than a few noses out of joint".
