KFC Crawley in 'CLUCKING' crisis over chicken shortage

On Twitter, the company tried to make light of the issue, saying "The chicken crossed the road, just not to our restaurants".

It is rumoured KFC stores in Yeovil, Bridgwater, Wincanton and Glastonbury have been forced to close after a hiccup with deliveries meant the stores ran out of chicken.

All the other KFC outlets we've checked are open today.

While another tweeted: 'KFC in both Cheshire Oakes and Chester Greyhound Park are closed because.they're out of chicken'.

Cumbria's branches of the fastfood giant are among hundreds nationwide to be affected by problems with deliveries.

Managers and staff are awaiting on deliveries and hope to be fully back open soon.

Last week, KFC implemented a new distribution system, with supplies now delivered to stores via DHL, but teething problems left a number of restaurants without their main ingredient.

"Getting fresh chicken out to 900 restaurants across the country is pretty complex".

The statement further read: "We won't compromise on quality, so several of our restaurants in the United Kingdom are either closed, have a reduced menu, or shortened hours over the weekend".

"We know that this might have inconvenienced some of you over the last few days, and disappointed you when you wanted your fried chicken fix - we're really sorry about that".

KFC UK has updated its website to list stores that were open from 9.18pm on February 18.

The Carlisle branch was unable to make a comment when contacted by the News & Star.
